Francisco graduated from Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro University in Portugal back in 2017, after an externship at the Baixo-Vouga Veterinary Hospital and in the Complutense University of Madrid, where he was tutored by the now president of the European College of Veterinary Pathology (Prof. Dr. Laura Peña).
Francisco has carried out innovative research regarding immunohistochemistry in canine mammary tumours for his master thesis, which he passed with distinction!
He has joined the Holly House team in January 2019 and has since developed a special interest in intensive care medicine - he loves to look after our inpatients at the Street Lane Hospital and truly enjoys emergencies and critical care cases. He is very committed to providing the highest standard of care to our patients and has joined the senior team in September 2020.
Outside work, Francisco biggest pleasure is to travel the world. He also loves photography and music. He speaks 3 different languages (and has some knowledge of a couple more!) and was a professional basketball player for 7 years.
