Veterinary medicine offers a broad range of career choices. Heidelberg will prepare you for entry into the country's top veterinary programs by providing you with unique research opportunities, a personalized education plan, and transformational hands-on experiences.
Veterinary schools are some of the most selective graduate programs in the country, so you'll need to stand out. After earning your bachelor's degree, you'll pursue a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.), which is a four-year program, and then need to pass your licensing exam. You'll apply through the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS).

Everyone who applies to vet school is good at science – they want to see what else you do. Heidelberg could get me that. There’s not a single faculty member that I didn’t learn something from. I’ll always praise my experience here at Heidelberg.
Our students in veterinary programs say their experience in our Animal Lab was transformative and a huge advantage for graduate work. Mostly used for housing a rat colony, the lab also has facilities for frogs, crickets, and mice depending on student research needs.
