Veterinary Medicine

Students interested in pursuing studies leading to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree should complete one of the following programs outlined below if not planning to pursue the four year degree plan in Agriculture (Animal Science-Science option) from UTM. These curricula are designed to qualify students for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine at The University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Students considering application to other colleges of veterinary medicine should consult those colleges for their residency and admission requirements.

The following suggested plans of study offer: (1) the 2-year option of an accelerated program to meet only the requirements for admission to the professional degree program, (2) the 3-year option for the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture (Animal Science-Science option) after completion of the first year in The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, and (3) a four year program designed to lead to a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture (Animal Science-Science option) that will meet the admission requirements to most colleges of veterinary medicine (Note 1).
