Dr. Peter Hill is a UK veterinary graduate with 25 years experience of general practice, specialist referral work and research. He graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1986. After spending 5 years in a UK small animal hospital, he trained as a veterinary dermatologist at the University of Madison-Wisconsin in the USA. He then completed a PhD at the University of Edinburgh before becoming a lecturer in Veterinary Dermatology. After 11 years at Edinburgh, during which time he spent 3 years as the Hospital Director, he moved to the University of Bristol as a Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Dermatology. In 2009, Peter emigrated to Australia with his family to take up a post as a specialist dermatologist in a Sydney referral centre. In 2010, he moved back into academia to take up his current post at the University of Adelaide. Peter is Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Dermatology and Director of the Companion Animal Health Centre. Peter Hill is the only veterinary dermatologist in the world to have been board certified as a Diplomate in the UK, Europe and the USA, as well as having a PhD.

Dr Hill has taught undergraduate and postgraduate veterinary students at four different Universities. His primary teaching interest is dermatology, but he has also taught immunology, endocrinology and basic clinical skills. He has also trained 9 dermatology residents. Peter has given over 200 invited talks and presentations and has spoken in the UK, USA, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Sweden and Japan. In 2007, Peter won the Marbocyl achievement award for excellence in teaching as voted for by 4th and 5th year veterinary students at Bristol University.
Dr Hill’s research career has focused on the pathogenesis of allergic skin diseases in dogs and cats, with particular emphasis on the role of IgE, IgG, mast cells, allergen-specific T cells and commensal microorganisms. His recent studies have focused on the interaction between house dust mites, staphylococci, Malassezia organisms and canine skin.
Dr Hill has written two textbooks and published 68 peer-reviewed papers.
