Dr. María Forzán

Veterinary Pathologist

María is a native of Mexico City, Mexico. She attended the National University of Mexico (UNAM) in Mexico, and graduated in 1996. She completed an MSc program at the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) working on the effect of immunosuppression on the levels of parasites in double-crested cormorants. Afterward, she went through a residency in Veterinary Pathology between the University of Connecticut and the AVC. María has been a member of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists since 2004. She thought of expanding her geographical and pathological experience by working for a couple of years at Finn Pathologists, in England, mainly on biopsy submissions of pet species. She then returned to Canada and wildlife pathology and has been working with the Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre, Atlantic Region, at the AVC, since 2007. She is one of the three wildlife veterinary pathologists here at the AVC.
