What Awaits You at the College of Veterinary Medicine?

Opportunity We’re growing. Between 2016 and 2021, we’ve invested more than $36M in facilities improvements to clinical, instruction, and research facilities.

You can grow with us. Many clinical faculty positions offer flexibility in balancing your appointment’s focus within our mission of teaching, research, and service. We want to help you pursue your passion.

Community The College of Veterinary Medicine is committed to a culture of inclusiveness, collegiality, professionalism, and service. You’ll find open communication and transparency in decision making.

We strive to bring an integrated approach to all our endeavors. That means building interdisciplinary teams to push the boundaries of science and medicine. And uniting the basic and clinical sciences in our innovative veterinary curriculum. And engaging faculty at all levels, staff, and students as we chart the future trajectory of the college.

Continuity An impressive number of leaders in biomedical research, clinical specialties, and education have built a legacy of impact since our founding in 1948. That legacy continues today. United in our desire for healthy animals, people, and environment, our diverse college community provides a welcoming workplace for new team members who share this vision.
