Albert graduated from the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in 2011. He undertook an internship in farm and equine medicine at the same university followed by another year working in Spain with the army’s stud horses and in rural mixed practice. Deciding to specialise solely in equine medicine and orthopaedics, Albert moved to Dubai, working with high performance and competition endurance racehorses, as well as the odd racing camel.
After his time in the desert, Albert came to the UK in 2014 to work in purely equine practice in Leicestershire. Albert joined the RVC Equine team in May 2017 after undertaking an internship at Liverpool University Equine Hospital.
Albert is finishing his certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (involving everything from ophthalmology to geriatric medicine) and is already enrolled on the next one, the recently RCVS accredited certificate in equine lameness and sports medicine, as these are his main areas of interest.
