Instructors

Dr. Paige Carmichael, DVM, PhD, DACVP  

Dr. Carmichael received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Tuskegee University’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 1987 and then became a temporary instructor at UGA’s Tifton campus. From there, she entered a combined pathology residency/Ph.D. program at UGA and became a board-certified pathologist in 1995. As a professor of veterinary pathology in the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine she serves as a steadfast voice advocating for increased diversity in her profession and greater inclusion across the university.  She is the recipient of the Dawn D. Bennett Alexander Inclusive Community Award, recognizing the outstanding contributions of faculty to the promotion of diversity, equity and inclusion both within and beyond the classrooms at the UGA. 

Regarded as one of the preeminent leaders in veterinary medicine, her primary area of research emphasis has centered on better understanding a group of inherited neurological diseases in dogs. Her work has led to the development of a test for globoid cell leukodystrophy in Irish Setters and mucopolysaccharidosis IIIA in wire-haired dachshunds.  Dr. Carmichael’s work also extends to the investigation of potential therapeutics and treatments for these conditions, such as the use of xenogeneic stem cell transplants in a caprine model of MDSIIID. Additionally, her research group was the first to describe FeLV-associated myelopathy in cats. 

She is the first Black professor at the University to receive the prestigious Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professorship, and she’s also been the recipient of various awards and honors, including the Lilly Teaching Fellowship, the Carl Norden-Pfizer Distinguished Teaching Award, the Tyler Award for Teaching Innovation, the Iverson Bell Award and UGA’s Fulfilling The Dream Award. She also has been awarded the Outstanding Alumnus Award from Tuskegee. 

Dr. Carmichael also is involved in the life of the University community, serving on the Board of Directors for both the UGA Athletic Association and the Georgia Museum of Art. She also co-founded the Teaching Academy Fellows Program which helps early-career faculty become more effective teachers.
