Samantha Sander joined the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore as an associate veterinarian this past summer. At the Maryland Zoo, Sam is one of three veterinarians that manage the over 1500 birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, representing over 200 species. In August of 2015, Sam completed her three year zoological medicine residency at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park and is board eligible for the American College of Zoological Medicine. Leading up to her residency, Dr. Sander completed a one year rotating small animal internship in Connecticut and a one year zoo, exotics, and wildlife internship at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.
Sam graduated with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2010 and her Bachelors in honors biology and chemistry in 2006 both at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Beyond her extensive training, Sam has been published in four different journals and has taught several hundred veterinary students. She loves the challenge of managing so many different cases, contributing to the education of staff and the public, and making a larger impact in wildlife conservation.
