American veterinary surgeon Dr Rand Wilson has joined leading veterinary diagnostic laboratory Finn Pathologists in the newly created role of Head of Clinical Pathology. He joined the firm in late 2013 with a brief to enhance the cohesiveness and effectiveness of its diagnostic lab team and to build stronger working relationships with the veterinary practices it serves.

He became a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2008 and achieved Board Certification in Clinical Pathology in 2008 from the American College of Veterinary Pathologists.
Arriving in the UK in 2008, he gained experience in the veterinary labs sector before taking up his new role at Finn Pathologists, one of the UK’s leading veterinary diagnostics laboratories, in Harleston, Norfolk. He said: “High quality clinical pathology lies at the heart of effective veterinary practice. I bring broad-ranging experience to my new role and look forward to ensuring that we are equipped to bring our clients the very best specialised veterinary care and support.”
