She then completed an internship in Ambulatory Practice at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine and a residency at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine achieving Board Certification in Large Animal Internal Medicine. Afterwards, she served on the faculty of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in both the Farm Animal Medicine and Reproductive Services and Equine Medicine departments. Dr. Cochrane has given lectures in animal handling, parasite control, ruminant medicine and neurologic diseases, neonatal care, camelid medicine and bovine surgery. After many years away from her home state, Dr. Cochrane returned to North Carolina to work in private practice in 2008.
In 2015, Dr. Cochrane completed certification in Equine Veterinary Medical Manipulation at the Integrative Veterinary Medical Institute. EVMM is similar to chiropractic in human medicine and is beneficial to equine athletes of all disciplines.
