Dr. Robert Prošek is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) and has also become a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, Companion Animals (ECVIM-CA). He is board-certified in cardiology. His post DVM training started as an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University of Illinois followed by his cardiology residency training of three years. Dr. Prošek also pursued a Master of Science degree at the University of Illinois and received a degree in Veterinary Clinical Medicine. Special interests include all cardiovascular and respiratory topics especially echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart), novel medical and interventional therapies, blood based markers of heart disease and most importantly his patients.
Dr. Prošek was a clinical assistant professor of cardiology at the University of Florida for five years, where he was responsible for resident, intern and student training as he did at the University of Illinois also. Dr Prošek still serves as an adjunct professor of cardiology at the University of Florida, and serves as the cardiologist for Zoo Miami. He is also a reviewer for the Journal of Veterinary Cardiology, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine. Even though all these activities keep him busy, he feels they are all very important as it allows him to stay well rounded which he hopes will translate into optimal high quality care for his patients.
