In 1976, he was recruited on faculty at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, to help start the first new veterinary school in the USA in 21 years. While there along with a large clinical caseload, Bob was responsible for teaching lameness in horses and continuing education seminars throughout the USA. While at U of Tennessee, they continued to advance the use of large bone grafts to include partial joint replacement in horses.

In 1981, the 'call of the north' brought Bob back to Canada. After two years of racetrack practice, he joined his wife Dr. Denice Schlingman in her practice, here at Uncas Veterinary Clinic. Bob continues to serve this community and the animals in it to this day when called upon.
