Veterinary Medicine (Pre)

Pre-veterinary medicine is a pre-professional track that consists of courses in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics which are required for admission consideration by Veterinary Medicine schools. Veterinary schools do not require specific majors, such as biology or chemistry, the requirements may be added to any major. For some majors, this may add extra time to complete all academic requirements. You should learn as much as you can about the veterinary medicine programs you wish to apply to and work with the UCBA advising office to select the best classes.


Where It Will Take You

Veterinary medicine requires additional schooling beyond a baccalaureate degree. Competition to enter these professional schools is keen, and because significant time and expense are involved, students are encouraged to plan for alternative careers as back up plans.

Additional career options are listed on the Center for Exploratory Studies website.


Non-Degree Program

Pre-veterinary medicine is not a major but a pre-professional track that consists of courses required to be considered for admission to Veterinary Medicine schools.  In Ohio the only program is offered at The Ohio State University. http://vet.osu.edu/  Students should consult OSU's website for the most current requirements.
