Sarah Dukti, joins the faculty team as a clinical assistant professor of emergency and critical care
We would like to introduce you to Sarah Dukti, who has joined the Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center as a clinical assistant professor of emergency and critical care. Dukti will fill one of two faculty positions focusing exclusively on the initial diagnosis, treatment, and care of emergency and critical care cases.
Dukti received a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Oakland University before earning her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University, in Columbus, Ohio. Following an internship at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky, Dukti completed a residency in large animal surgery at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.
Choosing to stay on at the New Bolton Center, Dukti completed an alternate track residency in large animal emergency and critical care. During her residency, Dukti became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and later became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care.
Dukti joined the EMC as a clinical assistant professor of emergency medicine and surgery prior to stepping into roles as a relief surgeon and consultant for emergency and critical care at Woodside Veterinary Hospital in Ashland, Virginia, and The Piedmont Equine Practice in the Plains, Virginia, later moving into an associate emergency veterinarian role at Piedmont, a position that she held for 12 years.
Eighteen years in the Northern Virginia region have provided Dukti with broad-based experience in emergency surgery and medicine, preparing her for her new role as part of the emergency and critical care team at the EMC.
Dukti lives in Hume, Virginia, with her husband Daniel, a horse named Boogity, two donkeys, a Parson Russell terrier named Frannie, and two much-loved ducks that came to her home to foster for a short time and ended up as part of the family!
