We pride ourselves in our commitment to advancing scientific medical knowledge. More than 199 individuals have completed either master of science (M.S.) or doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in Veterinary Medical Sciences through our graduate studies program. These individuals are working in academia, in the biomedical sciences, in government and in industry to advance animal, human and environmental health. UF College of Veterinary Medicine, one of 28 vet schools in the United States, is dedicated to advancing animal, human and environmental health through its teaching, research, extension, and patient care activities.
The UF College of Veterinary Medicine is a national leader in the education of veterinarians. Our current DVM enrollment includes more than 330 students, and we have more than 120 students enrolled in our master's and doctoral programs. We are always interested in assisting students who desire to advance their education in the art and science of veterinary medicine.
Our research programs generate new knowledge, both basic and applied, relating to the health of domestic animals and wildlife, insuring a safe food supply, and finding a cure for certain human diseases. Research and graduate training programs in the College of Veterianry Medicine are supported by modern laboratory facilities, including numerous individual laboratories devoted to basic and clinical research, central research facilities designated for multidisciplinary use, specialized core service laboratory facilities, and modern animal housing facilities. The goal of veterinary extension is outreach and education by providing animal health leadership and information resources to Florida's various commodity groups, the private sector, county extension faculty, and university faculty.
