DVM, ACVIM (ONCOLOGY).
Dr. Erin Michael Romansik was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, making him a die-hard Broncos fan (sorry New England). He attended Penn State University as an undergraduate, receiving a BS in biology. Dr. Romansik then returned to Colorado, enrolling in veterinary school at Colorado State University. He received his DVM degree in 2002, finding his passion for veterinary oncology along the way. In pursuit of residency training, Dr. Romansik completed an internship at Tufts University, followed by an oncology internship in Tampa, Florida. He then went on to the University of California, Davis, completing his medical oncology residency in 2006. In 2007 he became a board-certified Diplomate in the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
Dr. Romansik has been practicing in the Boston area and New Hampshire since 2006, including a two-year position with Aratana Therapeutics. There, he was part of a team developing novel therapies for serious diseases in dogs and cats. Aratana was a short, exciting diversion from clinical medicine, but Dr. Romansik missed the personal interactions with patients and clients. He returned to treating patients in 2016, forming his own independent consulting practice which has grown into Animal Cancer Care Specialists.
Outside of work, Dr. Romansik spends as much time as he can with his wife (also a veterinarian) and his three daughters. They share their home with a dog, two bunnies, a fish, and a snail (can’t forget the little guys). His interests include anything outdoors, and his first love – meteorology.
