Auburn Veterinary Specialists-Gulf Shores is the centerpiece of a 24,000-square-foot Auburn University Educational Complex in Gulf Shores, Alabama, providing specialty veterinary service and educational opportunities for students interested in internal medicine and surgery.
The center operates as a referral-only facility, and will provide services in surgery and internal medicine for the local veterinary community. The facility also provides an educational function as fourth-year Auburn veterinary students participate in elective two-week clinical rotations.
The Auburn University Educational Complex is a partnership with the City of Gulf Shores, announced by the city in 2014 a strategic plan called “Small Town, Big Beach- Vision 2025 for Sustainability” that included plans for the Coastal Alabama Center for Educational Excellence, an academic campus with a new high school and a new location for Coastal Alabama Community College.
The Auburn University Educational Complex will help meet the needs of the strategic plan by offering educational and economic development resources for the community, strengthening the region’s ability to serve its citizens.
