About University of Arizona
Set in the beautiful Tucson valley, the UA College of Veterinary Medicine is being designed as a 3 calendar year, competency-based curriculum, educating a new generation of veterinarians to serve the state of AZ and its citizens. The UA Oro Valley campus is the administrative and preclinical training headquarters for the program, with multiple facilities in the Tucson metro area utilized for clinical and professional skills development during the first two years of training. The third clinical year will utilize a hybrid distributive model to provide students a wide variety of clinical settings where students work alongside practicing veterinarians. These settings include those at the university, as well as in private practice, industry, and public health. Research emphases within the College of Veterinary Medicine will align and integrate with the extensive network of University of Arizona research programs focusing on animal and human health, agriculture, biomedical engineering, and bioinformatics. When the University of Arizona launches the state’s first public veterinary medical education program, it will offer a unique education model that reduces costs, speeds time to graduati...on, and prepares competent veterinarians for immediate entry into private and public sectors of the workforce upon graduation.
