Amy Johnson, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, was recently appointed to the faculty of New Bolton Center as assistant professor in large animal internal medicine and neurology. The New Bolton Center is the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s large animal campus, located in Kennett Square, Pa.

Johnson has been a clinician and lecturer at New Bolton Center (NBC), which holds as part of its mission the education of veterinary students, since 2008. During this time she also completed a non-traditional residency program in neurology and has become one of only three large animal veterinarians in the world board-certified in both internal medicine and neurology. Johnson received her veterinary degree from Cornell University, where she also completed a large animal internal medicine residency.

As a neurologist, Johnson focuses on diseases affecting the nervous system and related diseases such as wobbler syndrome, equine herpesvirus, West Nile virus, rabies, protozoal myeloencephalitis, and other neurologic diseases to which horses, as well as camelids and food animals, are susceptible.
