Veterinary Technology

Provide Quality Care for Animals Great and Small

Do you love taking care of animals? Our veterinary health technology option can help you put your passion to work. Animal health care is a growing field that needs qualified professionals, and our veterinary health technology program is one of the most comprehensive in the country.

UT Martin is one of fewer than 30 institutions nationwide to offer an accredited four-year program in the area of veterinary health technology. Unlike two-year programs that have a limited focus, our veterinary technology concentration will prepare you to work with a wide variety of animal patients—everything from livestock to exotic pets.

Our comprehensive curriculum is just one of the reasons why our students have such a high rate of success. In fact, 96% of our veterinary technology students are hired in the field within 60 days of graduation—and many even have multiple job offers!
