New Curriculum – Launched in the Fall of 2022

The educational paradigm in veterinary medicine has shifted and our students need new tools and a new perspective on how to become veterinarians in today's world.

  • Our students now need new tools
    • Our students now need to know how to:
      • find, assess, analyze, and synthesize that information
      • integrate information from multidisciplinary sources
      • problem-solve
      • decide on a best course of action, whether that involves patient care, the trajectory of their research, or running a business

    While knowledge is important, our new curriculum shifts towards how to use that knowledge, how to practice, how to learn iteratively and succeed by achieving competencies that build on one another.
