Dr. Meg Sislak earned a doctorate of veterinary medicine from Western University of Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine. After veterinary school, Dr. Sislak completed an internship in equine lameness, sports medicine, and diagnostic imaging at Virginia Equine Imaging followed by a small animal rotating internship at Michigan Veterinary Specialists. She subsequently completed her residency at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
During her career, Dr. Sislak has worked with veterinary specialists, general practitioners, technicians, and support staff across a range of settings. This has given her a bird’s eye view of the job-related stress veterinarians and their staff face, often due to interactions with clients. Wanting to make a positive impact on this problem, Dr. Sislak began working with the Clinical Scholars team to develop an evidence-based program aimed at reducing client caregiver burden transfer to workers in veterinary medicine. She hopes to reduce the mental health crisis and mental health stigma in the in the veterinary community.
Dr. Sislak is currently a veterinary radiologist at MedVet in Northeast Ohio where she enjoys being part of a diagnostic team helping clients enjoy more quality time with their pets. In her spare time, you’ll find her hiking in the Cleveland Metroparks or Cuyahoga Valley National Park, walking her two rescue dogs, or reading a book.
