Are you looking for a rewarding career in healthcare that involves both people and furry friends? Becoming a veterinarian can seem like a lot of time with fun pets, but it truly involves a great deal of communication with human clients as well. If you consider yourself a people and/or animal person, this career may be for you! Just like other health professional programs, planning for a veterinary medicine degree takes a great deal of planning. If you are interested in pursuing vet med, we recommend starting your school search early to stay on top of required classes, experience hours, and deadline expectations. If you have any questions regarding your schedule or involvements, please schedule a full appointment with a pre-health advisor. 

Note: Health professional schools have various requirements. Keep in mind that these are general guides. Students must research specific schools of interest for a complete listing of requirements and meeting with a Pre-Health advisor is recommended.
