 Valerie Dufour Biography

I graduated from the University of Liege, Belgium in 2012, where I then undertook a small animal rotating Internship. After a few months in small animal general practice in the Norfolk in the U.K., I joined the Retinal Disease Studies Facility of Drs. Gustavo Aguirre and William Beltran at the University of Pennsylvania for a 5-year post-graduate fellowship. I started my ABVO residency program in the same institution in January 2020, and was able to combine it with an ECVO program starting in July 2020, under the supervision of Dr. Elaine Holt. Beside eyeballs, I enjoy hiking with my Brittany Spaniel, my Standard Poodle and my husband.
