Creating a Culture of Innovation
Designed from the ground up to equip students with the skills needed for a career in veterinary medicine today, The University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine is revolutionizing how future veterinarians learn. Progressive hands-on learning, a student-centered curriculum and team-based training take students out of the classroom. Interpersonal skills, business acumen, leadership and well-being are vital elements in a program that prepares day-one, career-ready professionals.
The Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program
Our three-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program provides the foundation in veterinary medicine and surgery that future practitioners need, plus the professional and clinical skills critical for success. The degree is delivered over six pre-clinical semesters in on-campus facilities, followed by three clinical semesters within a network of training sites that allows each student to experience the profession actively.
Our admissions process focuses on assessing candidates as unique, multidimensional individuals. We consider academic and personal history as well as an applicant’s overall fit with our mission and values.
What sets our program apart from traditional training?
Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine breaks the mold of traditional programs by taking a whole-person approach to training the industry's future leaders.
The classroom is anything but typical. It’s where you will learn hands-on how to make decisions in critical scenarios and where you will make connections with industry leaders to launch your career.
