Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine earned its international reputation for quality teaching, research, and clinical service through generations of caring faculty and students.
From the early work of Dr. Charles Allen Cary more than a century ago, to the development of current cutting edge research initiatives, Auburn influences the character and scope of veterinary medicine. As the country’s seventh oldest veterinary school and the oldest in the South, Auburn is one of the nation’s premiere institutions for research, teaching, diagnosis, and treatment in many specialties of small and large animal medicine.
At Auburn, students have the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment with more than 100 nationally and internationally recognized faculty to pursue needed answers to current challenges in areas such as biotechnology, oncology, critical care, genetics, infectious diseases, molecular medicine, neuroscience, gene therapy, and nanotechnology.
The ability to compassionately and effectively prevent, diagnose, and treat illness and injuries in individuals and herds is a remarkable art and science. At Auburn, we take seriously our mission of educating veterinarians for the future – to nurture animal health, to relieve animal suffering, and to translate knowledge of the animal world into real wisdom for society. We welcome all applicants who aspire to a career of service in this distinguished profession.
