Veterinarians and staff work on a privately owned mountain lion at the William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. The lion came to the university for a CAT scan and rhinoscopy.
Goal 7: Build strong collaborations across UC Davis and with other academic, government, agricultural and business partners.
Veterinary medicine is best served by promoting a collaborative approach to offer its educational programs and promote multi-disciplinary research. Towards that goal we look to developing new and enhance existing collaborations across the campus and with government or private industry. Each partner brings a different perspective and area of expertise to add to the collective research investigation or in adding real world experience for our veterinary and graduate students’ educational enhancement. Academia is richer with strong collaborative partners.
