Dr. William Jackson
graduating from college with a major in Biology and a minor in
Chemistry, William went to veterinary school at Cornell University.
It was during this time that his interest in equine surgery was
solidified. After receiving his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine
(DVM) he traveled to Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington,
Kentucky for a one year equine medical and surgical internship.
Upon completion of his internship, William was accepted into the
prestigious equine surgical residency program at Michigan State
University. During his surgical residency he conducted extensive
research in subchondral bone cysts of the equine stifle and researched
a new procedure involving transplantation of endogenous cancellous
bone into the cystic cavities.
After finishing the surgical residency, he
successfully completed certification to become a Diplomate of
the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (DACVS) and joined
the staff of the Equine Specialty Hospital. In 2004, Dr. Jackson
received his Masters in Business Administration (MBA) after an
intensive two year program at Cleveland State University while
continuing to work full time as a veterinarian. In April of 2004,
William and his wife Dr. Cynthia Jackson purchased the Equine
Specialty Hospital. Together they cater to clients by providing
progressive specialty medicine and surgery services.
