Use #ScienceWithHeart to show Vet Med love

Our college has adopted the phrase “Science with Heart” to illustrate the rigor and the caring that characterizes veterinary medicine and its beneficial impact on our world.

“Science with heart” happens at a personal level when an animal patient is made well and restored to its human family or wild habitat, or when an aspiring student gains confidence in her skills and knowledge through the guidance of an instructor.

Personal Impact:

It also happens on a global scale, through discoveries that will bring healing to hundreds of lives, and through authoritative information about animal health freely available through online education.
