The University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine is revolutionizing how future veterinarians learn. Progressive hands-on learning, a student-centered curriculum and team-based training take students out of the classroom. Interpersonal skills, business acumen, leadership and well-being are vital elements in a program that prepares day-one, career-ready professionals.


Student Support

Scholarships are essential for students to get the most out of their education and provide an opportunity to work in underserved communities post-graduation without the burden of debt. By investing in the next generation of veterinary professionals, you can make a real difference in the careers and well-being of students.
