Compendium Appoints Dana Allen New Editor in Chief

    YARDLEY, Pennsylvania, May 1, 2012—Dana G. Allen, DVM, MSc, DACVIM, Professor Emeritus of the Ontario Veterinary College, has been named editor in chief of Compendium: Continuing Education for Veterinarians.®

    Dana Allen

    A member of Compendium’s  Editorial Board since 1992, Allen has more than 30 years of experience as a teacher, researcher, and graduate supervisor in veterinary medical education in North America. He previously served as chair of the Department of Companion Animals at the Atlantic Veterinary College and chair of the Department of Clinical Studies at the Ontario Veterinary College.

    During his academic career, he has edited, authored, or contributed to numerous textbooks, including Small Animal Medicine, Small Animal Cardiopulmonary Medicine, and several editions of the Handbook for Veterinary Drugs.  He has authored more than 60 articles published in refereed journals and written more than 65 textbook chapters.

    “Writing, editing, and helping to develop concepts is a passion for me,” noted Allen in taking on this new role.  In addition to Compendium, he has served on the editorial boards of the Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association and the Merck Veterinary Manual. Currently, he is the editor of Small Animal Veterinary Rounds and an associate editor of the Canadian Veterinary Journal.

    Allen is a 1976 graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College. Following graduation, he entered small animal private practice, first in Ottawa and then Vancouver before returning to his alma mater to complete a residency in small animal internal medicine and a master’s degree. He is board certified (ACVIM) in small animal internal medicine and has served on both the credentials and residency training committees of the ACVIM.  His research to date has focused mostly on diabetes mellitus and hemostasis.

    ''I am honored to have been invited to be the Compendium’s new editor in chief,” said Allen. “I look forward to working with the Compendium team, our readers, and contributors to continue to build upon the record of excellence the journal has provided to our profession over the years.''
