World Class Vision and a Benefit to All
The Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine captures a unique balance of world class research in animal and public health, high quality learning experiences and cutting-edge medical care, all with a family-like atmosphere.
Our passion is to improve the health and well-being of animals for the benefit of the animals, their owners, agribusiness, biomedical research and, thus, society. We achieve our vision by providing compassionate, world-class health care and diagnostic services and by conducting translational veterinary research (bench to clinic). We further realize our vision, in part, by investing ourselves in training students and veterinary professionals and encouraging them to embrace and perpetuate our vision. We are driven to accomplish these goals by the knowledge that our calling will better the life of society and the animals entrusted to our care.
The MSU CVM professional curriculum provides courses leading to the doctor of veterinary medicine degree (DVM), which is a four-year curriculum. Graduate programs of study offered in the College lead to the MS or PhD degree in selected areas of specialization. We began offering an undergraduate program in veterinary medical technology in 2010, and the first class with a BS degree graduated in the spring of 2012.
