Only at Mississippi State University's CVM
The Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine provides students with a strong, multi-species foundation and allows students the opportunity to focus on species or discipline interests. MSU CVM is one of only several US colleges of veterinary medicine that—like most colleges of human medicine— provides two full years of mentored clinical education.
Joining the DVM Program
The academic year at MSU CVM for first-year students begins in mid-late June. All prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of the spring semester prior to entering the DVM program.
In addition to meeting all academic and deadline requirements, an applicant must be in good standing at his/her current university, as well as at all colleges or universities he/she has attended. A student who has been dismissed from another college of veterinary medicine will not be considered for admission to MSU CVM.
About the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program
Our graduates are highly sought after and are offered opportunities to work all over the world in a variety of different capacities!
The structure of our curriculum provides an extensive amount of hands-on, clinical experience, which is appealing to many employers. To prepare for clinical instruction, students in phase 1 follow a set curriculum for the first two years. MSU students receive core instruction in all major domestic species and do not "track." Phase 2 begins in the third year with required clinical rotations in the majority of our clinical service areas. The fourth year provides time (26 weeks) for students to focus on their career interest through their choice of externships and elective coursework.
