Teresa Hopfgartner, DVM

Intern, Equine Medicine/Surgery

Originally from Austria, Dr. Teresa Hopfgartner joined the EMC as a rotating medicine and surgery intern in January 2020.

After graduating in 2018 with her DVM from the Veterinary School at the University of Munich, she completed an internship at the Equine Hospital of the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Austria.

Dr. Hopfgartner, who grew up on a little farm in a tiny village in the Austrian Alps, kept her parents on their toes with her independence and adventurism. Her main interests include surgery and anesthesia, and she plans to apply for an equine surgical residency. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time outdoors: horseback riding, skiing, hiking, kayaking, or mountain biking.
