College of Veterinary Medicine Tour
Join us Thursday, October 25, for a guided tour of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. The tour includes an overview of the college, tours of the large and small animal clinics, diagnostic labs, and library. Registration is limited to 14 participants.
The College of Veterinary Medicine is the only veterinary college in the state, and one of only 28 in the country offering a four-year professional Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree program. The college works to translate discoveries in the theoretical sciences into biomedical applications that benefit human and animal health. Current areas of scholarly focus include infectious diseases, ecosystem health, orthopedic biology, reproductive biology, toxicology, and oncology. Programs in stem cell and regenerative biology, host-microbe interactions, and environmental sustainability are also developing. The college provides many services to the public, including a full-service animal hospital and diagnostic laboratory, a wildlife medical clinic, the Pet Loss Helpline, and the Plants Toxic to Animals Database.
