About Me

Focus Areas





Dr. Carly Patterson received her DVM from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011. She completed her rotating internship and small animal internal medicine residency at Texas A&M University and became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine-Small Animal Internal Medicine in 2015. She is currently a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology department at Texas A&M University.

  • Veterinary Education

The majority of my teaching is at the professional student level. I co-teach the veterinary pharmacology course and cover a broad range of various therapeutic agents across multiple disciplines (e.g. respiratory, cardiology, gastrointestinal, etc.) with corresponding clinical examples. I co-coordinate the communication module for the third-year veterinary students and conduct simulated actor scenarios with real-time feedback. In the physiology II course, I teach the gastrointestinal physiology section and introduce foundational concepts necessary for clinical medicine. The professional and clinical skills courses afford me the opportunity to introduce various case-based and innovative educational methodologies over a wide array of topics. As a clinician in a basic science department, I have the unique privilege of translating basic science concepts into clinical concepts across all four years of the curriculum. I serve as a senior clinician on the fourth-year small internal medicine rotation in the small animal teaching hospital and relish the moments when students can apply their knowledge to clinical cases and realize the intricate connections across medicine.
