About University of Illinois - College of Veterinary Medicine
The College of Veterinary MedicineThe College of Veterinary Medicine is uniquely qualified to address some of the world’s most critical problems. Our qualifications arise from the singular role of the veterinary profession, the only health profession trained in multispecies comparative medicine and able to elucidate key interconnections among human health, the environment, and agriculture.Veterina...ry students have many opportunities to participate in research at Illinois, including monitoring the health of free-living box turtles in the area.Through our professional and graduate degree programs, we supply veterinary scientists who work to improve animal, human, and environmental health. Through our outreach programs we touch the lives of thousands of animals and their owners and provide direct services that place us on the front line of key economic and public health issues in Illinois. Through our research expertise and facilities, we are making significant contributions to science and facilitating the translation of discoveries in the theoretical sciences into biomedical applications that benefit human and animal health.The centerpiece of our college is the four-year doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM) degree program. An innovative integrated curriculum introduced in 2009 has attracted the interest of educators around the world and was commended by the veterinary accreditation site visit team in 2013.The three academic departments – Comparative Biosciences, Pathobiology, and Veterinary Clinical Medicine – also offer master’s degree and PhD degree programs, as well as residencies in a number of veterinary medicine disciplines: anatomic pathology, anesthesiology, clinical pathology, clinical pharmacology, dentistry, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, equine medicine and surgery, food animal medicine and surgery, oncology, ophthalmology, production medicine/theriogenology (reproduction), small animal medicine, small animal surgery, and zoological, wildlife and exotic animal medicine. Internships at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital are non-degree educational programs designed to provide an in-depth knowledge of the management of clinical cases.The college has three service units: the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and the Medical District Veterinary Clinic in Chicago. They provide service to animal owners and veterinarians throughout the Midwest.
