The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences consists of five academic departments: Veterinary Integrative Biosciences, Veterinary Large Animal Clinical Sciences, Veterinary Pathobiology, Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology, and Veterinary Small Animal Clinical Sciences. Each department is administered by a department head, who is responsible to the Dean of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences for all programs assigned or developed in the department, including teaching, research, extension and service.
A Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and Field Service Clinic are operated within the College to provide clinical laboratories for the veterinary medical educational program.
An extensive research program in animal health and disease is conducted by the faculty and staff of the college, and a substantial number of the teaching faculty members are engaged in research.
A veterinary extension program carries research information to veterinarians, animal owners, and others in the state and nation with the least possible delay. The faculty makes research information available to the students in the classroom and laboratories in a timely manner.
The typical land-grant institutional mandate of teaching, research, patient care and service provides the organizational framework necessary to meet the dynamics in the ever-changing field of veterinary medicine.
Graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (Non-Thesis and Thesis Options) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees are available through a College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences umbrella Graduate Program focused in four training tracks (Biomedical Genomics and Bioinformatics, Diagnostics and Therapeutics, Infection, Immunity and Epidemiology, and Physiology and Developmental Biology). The Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences offers a Science and Technology Journalism MS program and a Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health MS program. Clinical specialty training programs are also available to provide effective training in the areas of professional specialization. The Interdisciplinary Faculty of Toxicology, a MS and PhD granting program composed of faculty from five colleges, is administratively housed in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
