Goal 3: Provide cutting-edge clinical programs that support education, research and service

Clinical patient care and veterinary clinical training are at the very core of the school’s mission. At the William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, patient care and teaching go hand-in-hand as our team of clinicians and technical staff provides outstanding animal health services and teach our DVM students and specialty residents the most up-to-date clinical approach and techniques. The hospital also offers a spectrum of clinical trials which allows clients to contribute to the advancement of animal health while offering them additional support for their own animal companion.
