Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, University of California, Davis, 2021


My name is Bradley Whelchel and I was born and raised in Riverside, California (about an hour outside of Los Angeles). I went to both undergraduate and veterinary school at the University of California, Davis. It was during my time in veterinary school where my passion for Cardiology came about. I then went on to pursue a small animal rotating internship at Iowa State University, followed by an emergency and critical care internship at North Carolina State University. I am now practicing as one of the cardiology residents at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. My specific interests include the treatment and management of congestive heart failure, diet-associated heart disease (dilated cardiomyopathy), and point of care ultrasound (POCUS). I am looking forward to seeing and treating your pets during my three years at Tufts!
