Dr Ceriel Maas
Ceriel graduated in 2000 as a companion animal veterinarian from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Utrecht, the Netherlands. He stayed at the University as a teacher in veterinary anatomy for another 2 years and received his first degree in academic teaching. During this period he was also working in general practice as a companion animal veterinarian.
In 2002 Ceriel started an internship at the University Clinic for Companion Animal Health in Utrecht and a year
later he became a resident in small animal surgery. In this 3-year residency he
combined clinical work, research, teaching and his training to become a board
certified specialist with the European College of Veterinary Surgeons (ECVS).
While preparing for his exams he worked for a 2-year period in referral specialist
practices in Amsterdam and Oisterwijk and in 2008 he became a board certified
specialist with the ECVS.
Beginning of 2009 he moved to the
southern part of the Netherlands to work as an orthopedic and soft tissue
surgeon at referral center ‘Veterinaire Specialisten’ where he became a partner
in 2012. Since April 2017 the fully equipped referral center is moved to a new
location at the historic fortress ‘Fort Isabella’ in Vught.
Ceriel is a member of the
scientific committee of the European Veterinary Conference the Voorjaarsdagen.
He is a regular speaker at conferences and post-academic courses and enjoys
teaching. Next to his clinical work in his practice, he is actively
contributing to training students and residents by operating companion animals
at the University Clinic one day a week.
