Future Students


A Future in Veterinary Medicine: Our students come to Oregon State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine because they are passionate about helping animals lead healthy and happy lives – and we give them the tools to do that, whether it’s in the classroom or beyond it. Students here work in new, state-of-the-art facilities alongside our world-class faculty including specialists in cardiology, oncology, imaging and rehabilitation. The individual attention our students get from faculty and hospital staff is, in part, why year after year 100% percent of our students pass their board exams.  It's all about helping our students become the very best practitioners and researchers. 

OSU Vet Med offers students unique experiences that are not available anywhere else including:

  • An optional two-week experience at the Hatfield Marine Science Center on the Oregon coast
  • Three weeks of surgery experience at the Humane Society's Animal Medical Learning Center in Portland
  • An optional two-week experience at the Wildlife Safari Zoological Park
