Six Program Areas
The College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University is comprised of three departments—Clinical Sciences; Population, Health and Pathobiology; and Molecular Biomedical Sciences—and the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH), which provides tertiary care for both small and large animals.
These units provide the framework for the important work the College undertakes in:
- Companion Animal Medicine
- Equine Health
- Food Supply Medicine
- Ecosystem Health
- Animal Welfare
- Biomedical Research
Through these six areas, the College prepares the next generation of veterinarians and veterinarian scientists, conducts bench and clinical research to solve animal and human health problems, addresses critical ecosystem and public health issues, helps protect the U.S. food supply, and promotes a clearer understanding and appreciation of the ramifications related to the growing human-animal bond that is at the center of these concerns.
Though one of the youngest such programs in the United States, the College has achieved international recognition on the strength of its teaching, research, engagement, and patient care efforts.
