Jeremy Delcambre named LSU Vet Med assistant professor of anatomy
July 01, 2022
Jeremy Delcambre, DVM (LSU 2009), will join the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine as assistant professor of anatomy in July 2022. Dr. Delcambre previously served as assistant professor at the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CSU CVM).
“I can’t wait to have Dr. Delcambre join our anatomy team. With his outstanding expertise, and our strong and growing team of passionate veterinary anatomists, we look forward to building an anatomy program unrivaled anywhere in the U.S.,” said Tammy Dugas, Ph.D., head of the Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences.
Dr. Delcambre began teaching at Colorado State University in 2013 in undergraduate, graduate, and DVM anatomy courses, including Large Animal and Exotic Anatomy electives. He has served on numerous committees, including as faculty adviser for the CSU CVM chapter of the Student Association of the American Veterinary Medical Association (SAVMA), the DVM Admissions Committee, the DVM Scholastic Standards and Professionalism Committee, and as co-coordinator for the DVM ROLE Orientation Program, while participating in collaborative research with clinicians at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. He spearheaded several DVM wellness initiatives, including a student running group.
Dr. Delcambre hails from Monroe, Louisiana, and attended the University of Louisiana, Monroe, where he obtained both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. After a two-year stint as a surgical technician in (human) orthopedics, he began teaching anatomy while completing his master’s in biology.
His desire to pursue anatomic education led him to LSU Vet Med, where he graduated with a DVM in 2009.
“At LSU Vet Med, I didn’t just learn anatomy to teach future students. I learned a process and gained an appreciation for the art of anatomy, allowing me to grow and improve as an educator. I am so excited to come full circle as an assistant professor at my alma mater,” Dr. Delcambre said.
Dr. Delcambre completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Florida, where he taught various anatomy courses and trained in multiple methods of specimen preparation, including embalming, dissection, maceration, and specimen articulation.
At CSU College of Veterinary Medicine, he became the “anatomist on call,” helping large and small animal clinicians and researchers with projects such as canine vascular anatomy and ovine and equine pharyngeal and laryngeal anatomy. He also regularly helped pathologists prepare specimens for case reports in multiple species and recently collaborated with a sports medicine specialist on a new canine lameness textbook.
Dr. Delcambre serves on the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges Task Force on Animal Use in DVM Education and is a member of the American Veterinary Anatomist Association, among other professional affiliations.
