DVM Program Overview

transition ceremony

"We graduate confident, competent, career-ready veterinarians."

Earning a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree requires dedication and hard work, but rewards are returned for a lifetime. In general, students must complete 3-4 years of pre-veterinary undergraduate coursework followed by 4 years of a professional program in a college of veterinary medicine. Students may choose any accredited college/university to complete their pre-veterinary coursework, however, choosing a major related to the student's interest in science and animals is wise.  A list of required prerequisite courses as well as other important information can be found in the drop down menu to the left.


A Day in the Life

The Student American Veterinary Medical Association tasked each veterinary school to create a video about life in veterinary school.

Our very talented students at Oklahoma State University put together the video below for the friendly competition, which earned them first place and $500 for the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association!
