Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine offers a four-year professional degree leading to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM). Completion of at least two years of post-secondary instruction at a recognized university or at a college providing university-equivalency in coursework is required prior to application to the DVM program. Please refer to Admissions under the Faculty Regulations section for further details.


Graduate work supervised by members of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine leading to the Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees is offered under the administration of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Graduate degrees are linked to research conducted in basic biomedical, clinical, population and public health or related disciplines. Post-DVM internships and residencies will be provided leading to appropriate diplomate status in conjunction with MSc and PhD degrees. The approval process for the Veterinary Medical Sciences graduate program is underway. Details of specific programs appear in the Faculty of Graduate Studies Calendar and on the web.
