Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

The veterinary medical program is composed of the three-year preveterinary medical program and the four-year veterinary medical program. This provides students with flexible entry points depending on their academic background.

Generally, students from the North American model of education who hold a baccalaureate degree enter directly into the four-year veterinary medical program. Students from other academic backgrounds begin their studies in the preveterinary medical program, which provides a firm foundation for the veterinary medical program.

Dual degree programs provide veterinary medical students with the opportunity of studying public health or pursuing an MSc in research with concentration in anatomical pathology, anatomy, bacteriology, marine medicine, morphological and clinical pathology, parasitology, pharmacology, virology, or wildlife conservation medicine while pursuing their veterinary medical education.

Additionally, students in the first and second years of the preveterinary medical program who do not hold a first degree are eligible to obtain a bachelor’s degree in the course of their studies. Evaluation of prior educational background will determine eligibility and appropriate placement within the BSc/DVM program.
