Equine Preveterinary Medicine / Pregraduate Studies

Preveterinary MedicineThis program prepares students for entry into graduate school programs and colleges of veterinary medicine. Many undergraduate research opportunities are available. This major provides a unique opportunity for preveterinary medicine students to work with horses at our Austin E. Knowlton Center for Equine Science, producing horse-experienced veterinary students. In addition to fulfilling the specific requirements for entry into a graduate or veterinary program, students study the horse in depth, one body system at a time, learning about the normal anatomy and physiology, diseases and disorders, current diagnostic modalities, treatments, prognosis and prevention. Farrier science courses are also included in the curriculum.
