Tadej Zemljič graduated from the Veterinary Faculty of the University of Ljubljana in 1996. He has long been professionally attracted to ophthalmology, which led Tadej to visit and study at some of the best veterinary schools – Vienna (Austria), Leipzig (Germany), Utrecht (The Netherlands), Columbia (Missouri, USA), Raleigh (North Carolina, USA), Columbus (Ohio, USA) and private veterinary ophthalmology centres (San Francisco, USA; Greensboro, USA).
As a resident of the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists, Tadej has worked at the Veterinary Faculty in Zurich (Switzerland) and Columbus (Ohio, USA) as well as in a private veterinary ophthalmology clinic in Chemnitz (Germany). He completed his three-year residency programme in 2011 and passed his board examination in March 2012 to become a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists.
Dr Zemljič is currently a consultant-specialist in ophthalmology at Animal Hospital Postojna.
