Demand for Veterinarians in Illinois

Illinois Farm Bureau (Feb. ) – Dr. Jim Lowe, an associate professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign College of Veterinary Medicine, agrees that the cost of veterinary school – and subsequent debt – hinders potential students from applying. However, he notes options for financial aid and says the university works to set students up for success after graduation.

“We are trying really creative ways here to help students build relationships early in their veterinary career, especially with rural areas,” Lowe says.
