In 1910, the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine was established as a four-year, degree-granting program. More than a century later, the College remains committed to educating those who dream of becoming veterinarians. In studying veterinary medicine at the College, students learn not only how to serve society through the protection of food animal health and welfare, but how to be advocates and educators themselves. Through their advanced critical thinking, communication, clinical reasoning, and problem-solving skills developed at the College, MSU’s DVM graduates are trusted educators of the public.
