A Future in Veterinary Medicine: Our students come to Oregon State University’s Carlson 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; plus it's all about helping our students become the very best practitioners and researchers.
