Penn Vet leads in the practice of veterinary medicine in the nation and the world. We have long been recognized for our pursuit of excellence in education and training.
We have made continuous and significant contributions to basic and clinical investigation and have trained large numbers of students and faculty as biomedical research scientists. We have led the way in curriculum development, as exemplified by our unique core/elective VMD curriculum.
Because of Penn Vet's integrated approach to clinical and research training towards the goal of One Health, we also offer dual degree programs that prepare our students for the multitude of career options available to veterinarians in today's challenging world.
In addition to the VMD, Penn Vet also offers:
The VMD-MBA Dual Degree
The combined VMD-MBA training program is designed to address the stark challenge of feeding over nine billion people by 2050 with limited resources of land and water, poor infrastructures, mounting inequality, and the uncertain effects of climate change.
The VMD-PhD & Research Training Opportunities
In addition to the VMD, Penn Vet offers research opportunities such as the VMD/PhD program. We also offer internships, residencies, and fellowships.
Our students, including combined degree students (VMD-PhD), postdoctoral fellows and residents, enjoy a wide range of research opportunities in basic, translational and clinical research.
