Carina Rotter graduated from the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna (Austria) in 2013, specialising in small animal medicine within her last year of studies. She spent three and a half years working in a private referral centre in Vienna, a reputable clinic for 24/7 emergency service. During that time, Carina particularly strengthened her skills in emergency and critical care, diagnostic imaging and general surgery, before joining Fitzpatrick Referrals as a surgical intern in 2017. Afterwards, she enrolled on a three-year European College of Veterinary Neurology (ECVN) approved residency programme in neurology and neurosurgery in 2018, becoming a registrar in 2021.
Her main interests lie in the management of traumatic brain injury and the surgical management of spinal cord injuries associated with vertebral malformations.
