Courtney North, VMD, DACVIM

Dr. North is our MOVES veterinary internal medicine partner in the Tampa region. She is available to perform consultations and advanced internal medicine procedures including ultrasound and endoscopy at Suncoast Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center. Dr. North has lived in many different locations and considers herself a Foreign Service “brat”. She has worked just about everywhere, from specialty medicine “Down Under” (Australia) to providing care for street cats, dogs, and even rescued elephants in Asia. Dr. North obtained her veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania and proceeded to complete a year-long internship at the Animal Medical Center in New York, NY, followed by a 3 year residency in small animal internal medicine at Michigan State University. She became a board-certified Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 2010. When not helping patients or traveling, Courtney enjoys outdoor activities, reading, and relaxing with her cat, Bug (possibly the world’s best traveled cat) and dogs, Sasha and Birdie.
