Dr. Brooke Britton

Dr. Brooke Britton is a native New Yorker, growing up on Long Island and returning to New York City to reside after completion of her veterinary training. She obtained her veterinary degree at Cornell, and completed her residency in Medical Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Britton has been in clinical practice as a board-certified Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in Oncology since 2012 in New York, New Jersey, and California, the majority of those years as Head of Service for the Brooklyn and Downtown Manhattan Oncology departments of a large multi-specialty hospital network, where she was active in house officer training and clinical trials development. Dr. Britton was subsequently appointed the Director of Clinical Development for Veritas Veterinary Partners, a nationwide network of veterinary ER and specialty hospitals, where she architected and implemented clinical training and wellness initiatives within partner practices to strategically drive medical excellence and practice growth. She has lectured nationally, and is a peer-reviewed author, medical editor, and medical podcaster.

Dr. Britton joined the AMC as a Senior Veterinarian in the Cancer institute in 2023 to return to her passion for clinical practice, house officer training, and clinical research. While she provides comprehensive care for all cancer types, her particular interests lie in the treatment of hematologic malignancies, the use of small molecular inhibitor therapy and immunotherapy in veterinary cancer patients, and the multimodal treatment of metastatic cancers. Her practice philosophy is heavily quality-of-life-centered, while delivering the highest standard of oncologic care. Outside of clinical practice, Dr. Britton enjoys aerial fitness, forest bathing, travel, photography, and long strolls in NYC with her French Bulldog.
