Veterinary care is critical to maintaining the integrity of the food chain, and therefore has a significant impact on human health. Likewise, quality veterinary medicine helps to reduce the impact of zoonotic diseases on both people and animals. Companion animals are integral to human well-being and have a positive psychological and therapeutic impact on many populations, including the elderly and autistic children. Midwestern University established the College of Veterinary Medicine – the first veterinary school in Arizona – to train the next generation of veterinary healthcare professionals.
As a CVM student, you will take advantage of expert faculty and state-of-the-art training and clinical resources to maximize your potential as a veterinarian. From your first classes, you will work hands-on with animals of all types and sizes, and you will have a wealth of experiential training opportunities in many different settings. In your third and fourth years of study, you will work alongside faculty specialists at the Companion Animal Clinic, the Large Animal Center, and the Diagnostic Pathology Center in preparation for your own career in the field.
