Background

Dr. Harpreet Singh moved to Wisconsin in 1996 and resided in Milwaukee for 7 years. He attended Sholes Middle School and Rufus King High School. He then moved and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for both Undergraduate and Veterinary School. In order to pursue his passion of surgery he entered the MATCH program and landed in Boston for a 1 year Small Animal Medicine and Surgery Internship at Tufts University. He was invited to stay on for an additional 3 year residency in order to specialize in the field of Small Animal Surgery. Dr. Singh finished his studies in 2015 and became board certified in the beginning of 2016. He then relocated back to Madison and practiced at a multispecialty referral hospital for 6 years. He started with Veterinary Surgery Specialists full time in 2021 and continues to perform surgeries with us in the southeast region of Wisconsin.

Dr. Harpreet Singh received his Board-Certification with American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2016.

A veterinary surgeon has undergone additional training after veterinary school in order to become a specialist. This training consists of a minimum of a 1-year internship followed by a 3-year residency program that meets guidelines established by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS).

During the residency there are specific training and caseload requirements that must be met. In addition to these requirements, applicants must perform research that is published in a scientific journal and then pass a rigorous examination that is only offered once a year.

Specialists are called a “Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons” or a “board-certified surgeon.”
