Dr. Torre is a veterinarian in the Department of Emergency & Critical Care. He attended Cornell University for his undergraduate training and pre-vet coursework where he graduated with honors in 2007 with a double major in animal science and biology. During his time at Cornell, Chris worked closely with professors in the veterinary school and developed a strong appreciation for both small and large animal medicine. He went on to study veterinary medicine at the University of Pennsylvania where Chris was very involved on campus serving as the president of his class and as the president of the Penn Chapter of SCAVMA, the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medicinal Association. Chris received his VMD in 2012 as a mixed animal major performing his large animal training at New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, PA and his small animal training at the Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (VHUP) in Philadelphia.
Dr. Torre was raised in Medford, NJ, and he is a 2004 graduate of Shawnee High School. Chris has always had an appreciation for animals and the outdoors. He began working at the Animal Emergency Service of South Jersey in college, and this sparked his interest in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine.
Chris enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine; however, he especially enjoys emergency medicine and surgery of all species. Chris lives with his fiancé Nicole, their three dogs (Gus, Gigi, and Sanchez), and their two cats (Simone and Stella). In his free time, Chris enjoys fishing, hiking, traveling, and getting whooped in basketball by his fiancé. Chris hopes to someday start his own hobby farm.
