He is board certified in cardiology. His post DVM training started as an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University of Illinois followed by his cardiology residency training for three years. Dr. Prosek also pursued a Master of Science degree at the University of Illinois and received a degree in Veterinary Clinical Medicine. Special interests include all cardiovascular and respiratory topics, especially echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart), novel medical and interventional therapies, blood based markers of heart disease and most importantly, his patients.
Dr. Prosek was a clinical assistant professor of cardiology at the University of Florida for four years, where he was responsible for resident, intern and student training and is currently an adjunct professor of cardiology at the University of Florida. He is also a reviewer for the Journal of Veterinary Cardiology, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
