Ria Chalder Biography

After graduating from the University of Liverpool in 2015 I moved to Australia to complete an internship in Surgery and Anaesthesia at Scone Equine Hospital, NSW. Upon returning to the UK I worked as an ambulatory equine vet for Rossdales LLP and later, Bell Equine, before commencing an ophthalmology internship at the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket. Following closure of the AHT in 2020 I continued an ophthalmology intern role at Dick White Referrals. I commenced my ECVO residency at the University of Edinburgh, UK, in March 2021 under the supervision of Ben Blacklock. My interests lie in equine ophthalmology and clinical research. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, reading and yoga.
