Chief Medical Officer, Departments of Internal Medicine & Emergency Medicine
Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialists

Dr. Oswald, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, is a graduate of the Ohio State University (BS 1983, DVM 1987) and Colorado State University (MS 1991). He achieved board certification with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 1992 and has been a practicing small animal internal medicine specialist since that time. Dr. Oswald was a founding member of Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialists in Clearwater, Florida in 1993 and is currently Chief of Staff of the Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine. He is a frequent lecturer at worldwide CE meetings.
He resides in Clearwater Beach, Florida and Sedalia, Colorado.
We have all been to meetings where you already know 45 minutes of the material in a 50 minute lecture but have to wait until the very end to get that few minutes of new information! Dr. Oswald works with practicing veterinarians daily so his seminar series focus on identifying medical topics relevant to practicing veterinarians. The information is new and/or practical so the CE should never be boring!
