A new Internal Medicine Diplomate in our Mitze!

We are very grateful to our veterinary community for supporting the Internal Medicine Service. Since opening our doors in February the number of cases we have seen has steadily grown. We recently reached a point whereby we could no longer fully serve our referring practices and their patients – a position which impacted the level of care we could offer, and which did not sit comfortably with us. We are therefore delighted to announce the addition of Stefanie Mitze DVM DipECVIM-CA (Internal Medicine) MRCVS to the Internal Medicine team as we seek to increase the level of service we provide.

Let’s meet Stefanie…

Stefanie graduated in 2010 from the Szent István University in Budapest, Hungary. Since then she has worked in several multidisciplinary referral centres in Germany, including the University of Munich. Stefanie completed her residency in a private clinic in Munich (Tierklinik Haar) from 2014-2017. She has undertaken externship at the University of Bern in Switzerland and the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, as well as at the Royal Veterinary College.

When asked about what she particularly enjoys about internal medicine, Stefanie replied “All aspects of internal medicine! I especially love endocrinology, hepatology, pulmonology, haematology, gastroenterology… (can’t really stop here)!”

Outside of the hospital, Stefanie enjoys spending her free time with her son Emil. She is a keen sportswoman having completed seven Ironman-distance triathlons and enjoys practising her martial arts, especially karate. Stefanie has a beautiful mare, Marcella, who is 20 years old and very much enjoys her cuddles.

Stefanie’s favourite quote is by Milton Berle – “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door”.
