    Dr David Robson graduated from the University of Queensland with honours in 1992 and spent almost seven years in general small animal practice in Brisbane. He moved to Melbourne in late 1999 to commence his residency in veterinary dermatology at the Animal Skin, Ear and Allergy clinic (now Animal Skin and Ear Specialists and part of Melbourne Veterinary Specialist Centre) and never left. He attained Fellowship of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in 2005. Dr Robson has lectured in Australia and overseas (New Zealand, United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Austria) and has authored and co-authored multiple peer-reviewed scientific articles. His current professional research interests include methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius, cyclosporin, and otitis diagnosis and treatment. In what spare time he has from work, house and family, he modifies and drives a small hatchback in time trials at the racetrack, takes a casual interest automotive aerodynamics, snowboards, plays guitar and bass (the latter in the dermatological supergroup The Yeasty Boys) and dives, though this latter not as often as he would like.
