Dr. Conte is from Cranston, Rhode Island, and ever since he adopted his first dog Max in 5th grade, he wanted to be a veterinarian.
Dr. Conte went to THE Pennsylvania State University, University Park Main Campus, where he graduated in 3.5 years of study with a degree in Veterinary and Biomedical Science. He was thereafter accepted to Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, where he declared the small animal medicine track and graduated in 2020 with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Conte always had a strong interest in veterinary surgery, and to further his experience, he completed two surgical externships at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts as well as one surgical externship at Ocean State Veterinary Specialists in East Greenwich, Rhode Island.
Upon graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Conte was accepted to a rotating small animal and emergency internship at Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Annapolis, Maryland. It was during this internship that he found his passion for neurosurgery and seizure management. After the successful completion of his rotating internship, Dr. Conte completed a specialty internship in neurology and neurosurgery at Veterinary Neurology and Imaging of the Chesapeake, also in Annapolis Maryland, before beginning his residency at Southeast Veterinary Neurology in Miami, Florida.
Outside of work, Dr. Conte enjoys playing guitar, piano, and following Boston sports teams.
