  • Biography/ Background

    Erik Noschka originated from Germany and undertook veterinary training at the University of Leipzig.  After staying on for a clinical training in Equine Surgery and serving in Kosovo as Mountain Ranger and Escort Officer he moved subsequently to Athens, GA to complete a PhD in Physiology on equine laminitis under the supervision of Dr. James N. Moore. In 2007 he became a Resident of Large Animal Surgery at Virginia Tech to fulfil the requirements for Board Certification by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons while working successfully on his Masters of Science thesis in equine colic.

     

    Erik worked with Prof Riley on the design of the new equine hospital, the EHPC, and executed singlehanded the construction of the center between 2012 and 2014. Subsequent to writing the business plan for the new state of the art, large bore 16 slice CT scanner from Toshiba, he received the funding, redesigned the CT- room and implemented the scanner as a clinical and research imaging tool for the school and University of Adelaide.
