Primary Function of Organization Unit: North Carolina State University's College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is a dynamic community whose members are dedicated to preparing veterinarians and veterinarian scientists while advancing animal and human health from the cellular level through entire ecosystems. With the graduation of its first class in 1985, the CVM is one of the younger veterinary programs in the country. Despite its relative youth, the College has gained international recognition on the strength of its teaching, research, engagement, and patient care efforts and is ranked 3rd among the nation's 28 colleges of veterinary medicine in the current U.S. News & World Report survey. Located on 180 acres near downtown Raleigh, the College encompasses 20 buildings on the main Centennial Biomedical Campus. Instruction is in three departments;Clinical Sciences, Molecular Biomedical Sciences, and Population Health & Pathobiology. In addition to the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, there are programs leading to master and doctoral degrees in several areas with numerous opportunities for specialization. The highly-regarded House Officer Program provides one- to three-year internships or residency training in more than 20 clinical specialties and the innovative Clinician Scientist Training Program prepares veterinary researchers. The CVM is unique among veterinary colleges with an on-site Teaching Animal Unit that operates as a working farm and aids in hands-on instruction with large animal medicine and exposes students to basic agriculture principles and farm technology. More than 20,000 patients are diagnosed and treated annually by CVM clinicians and the Veterinary Health Complex at NC State University is a major referral center for veterinarians from throughout the Southeast. These patients are often seriously ill and require the best that veterinary medicine offers. This quality care is delivered with the utmost compassion for patient and owner, a hallmark of the program. The patient case load also allows for instruction and the opportunity for clinical trials that advance animal health and well being. The Veterinary Health Complex is composed of the 110,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Randall B. Terry, Jr. Companion Animal Veterinary Medical Center, the Equine and Farm Animal Veterinary Center, the Veterinary Health and Wellness Center, and Satellite and Field Veterinary Services. Since its inception, the CVM has chosen to put its focus on six specific program areas: Companion Animal Medicine, Food Supply Medicine, Biomedical Research, Ecosystem Health, Equine Medicine, and Animal Welfare. Through these six areas, the NC State CVM prepares the next generation of veterinarians and veterinarian scientists, conducts bench and clinical research to solve animal and human health problems, addresses critical ecosystem and public health issues, helps protect the U.S. food supply, and promotes a clearer understanding and appreciation of the ramifications related to the growing human-animal bond that is at the center of these concerns.
