W.A. Franke Honors College Applicants

Applicable for University of Arizona Honors College Students

The University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine is looking for a cohort of applicants poised to be the next generation of veterinarians. The program aims to introduce a small group of W.A. Franke Honors students (up to 5 participants) to the University CVM’s active-learning and team-based curriculum, interactive case-based problem solving, live animal lab experiences, team and professional learning communities within a hybrid-distributive model.

The cohort will follow an academic plan to complete all veterinary medicine school prerequisite coursework and individual learning modules to provide an early start to the content found in the veterinary medical school curriculum. Once admitted to the program, students will participate in the summer Arizona Franke Honors VetCat Early Assurance Program between their junior and senior years. This summer program will provide students with an immersive, mentored experience with Arizona CVM faculty and veterinary medicine students. Following this summer experience, participants will complete senior year requirements, including the Honors thesis, before beginning veterinary school.
