Dr Eben Martin BVSc MANZCVS (ECC & SAS)
Small Animal Surgical Resident

Following graduation from the University of Melbourne in 2010 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science, Eben continued to work in his home town of Melbourne in small animal general and emergency practice. In 2015 he lived in the UK and worked in small animal practice, whilst playing semi-professional cricket. Upon returning later that year, he became partner in a large practice in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and in 2016 obtained membership to the Emergency and Critical Care chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists by examination. Although Eben had worked primarily in emergency practice his passion always lay with surgery and in 2018 Eben moved to the sunny Perth to begin a 12 month internship at WAVES. During this same year he obtained entry into the Surgical Chapter of the College by examination, and in 2019 Eben began a three year surgical residency training program at WAVES. Although a long way from his family, Eben is loving his time in Perth, and considers it his home away from home. Eben has keen interest in orthopaedic surgery as well as emergency and trauma surgery.
