Dr. Adam’s career focuses on the health and welfare of the equine athlete. She has worked on racing stock in four countries (UK, France, Australia, USA) on three continents. Before becoming a veterinary clinician she worked for champion racehorse trainer, Sir Michael Stoute. As such, she has a deep and broad understanding of the industry and the importance of trust, integrity and honest communication. Emma sought further clinical education in the United States. The unmet clinical needs of our equine athletes led her to specialty training programs and PhD research.

Dr. Adam gained equine internal medicine specialty training at Texas A&M University and equine surgery specialty training at New Bolton Center, University of Pennsylvania. She is one of very few people with these dual specialties. Her PhD research gave her up to date training in regenerative medicine, genomics, and research method.
