Pre-Veterinary Medicine


There are currently 30 colleges of veterinary medicine in the U.S. that will train aspiring veterinarians. As a result, competition can be fierce as a results you must have a very good grade point and lots of volunteering or experience working with a vet. Earning a DVM (or VMD in Pennsylvania) will require extensive preparation at the undergraduate level. At Butler University, the Pre-Health Advisors recommend you complete a degree in Biological Sciences and that you volunteer at small and large animal clinics in preparation for your advanced study. For more information see the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges website.
