The program provides extensive training in basic and applied research for qualified students with a baccalaureate degree or a D.V.M. or equivalent degree. Applicants are expected to have a background in the biological sciences, mathematics, chemistry, and physics. Particular attention is paid to the advanced education of veterinarians, those interested solely in research, and those interested in combining their graduate study with residency training in a clinical specialty. The College offers three areas of specialization within the veterinary medical sciences program: Large and Small Animal Clinical Sciences: Physiology, endocrinology, aquatic animal health, fish diseases, gastroenterology, immunology, vision sciences, perinatology, reproductive biology, pharmacokinetics, veterinary sports medicine, and wildlife and zoological medicine. Physiological Sciences: Comparative anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, neurobiology, nutrition, reproductive biology, and toxicology. Infectious Diseases and Experimental Pathology: Bacteriology, parasitology, virology, immunopathology, molecular mechanisms of disease and host defense, epidemiology, and veterinary public health. The College participates in the interdisciplinary specialization in toxicology, in cooperation with other departments and colleges in both the Health Science Center and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and with the Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology.
