Dr Irene Flickinger graduated from veterinary school in Vienna, Austria in 2006.

The following year she started her residency in medical oncology and became a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine – Companion Animal sub-specialty Oncology in 2016. After one year as senior clinician in medical oncology at the Vetsuisse faculty in Zurich, Irene joined the AniCura AOI Center in Zug, Switzerland, as head oncologist. Dr Irene Flickinger is interested in all aspects of small animal oncology, in particular lymphoma, leukemia and small molecule therapy.
