The College of Veterinary Medicine offers a professional program that requires four years of full-time academic and clinical study of the normal and abnormal structure and function of the animal body and the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of animal disease.
Graduates of the college receive the doctor of veterinary medicine (D.V.M.) degree, which is recognized by licensing boards throughout the world. Graduates generally enter private practice or academia, or become engaged in one of an increasing number of biomedical activities.
Admission requires a minimum of three years of college work, including specific prerequisite courses and experience. Applications must be filed approximately one year before the proposed matriculation date. The competition for admission is keen, since there are many more qualified applicants than can be admitted.
Graduate programs in veterinary research and postdoctoral training in clinical specialties are open to doctors of veterinary medicine and some highly qualified holders of baccalaureate degrees and lead to the degree of master of science or doctor of philosophy.
More detailed information is available at the College of Veterinary Medicine website, www.vet.cornell.edu.
Note: 5000- and 6000-level courses are open only to veterinary students except by written permission from the instructor.
The College of Veterinary Medicine’s professional curriculum comprises courses in two categories: Foundation courses and Distribution courses.
Courses contributing to the D.V.M. degree begin with VTMED.
