Introduction to the New UA College of Veterinary Medicine

The College of Veterinary Medicine is unlike any other DVM program in the nation. Our primary mission is to lead the profession as a student-centered program focused on developing career-ready veterinarians who will live healthy meaningful lives and serve society. 

The three-year, nine-semester, continuous program provides the necessary structure and breaks to help increase graduation rates and enable students to earn salaries sooner than their peers. Students will receive the same amount of didactic teaching, but in a more condensed strategic model.

In the first two years, students will build a strong foundation in veterinary medicine and surgery while interweaving competencies required for future career success. Third-year rotations will focus on providing the necessary clinical competencies needed for career-readiness.

Third-year students will have access to normal and clinically diseased animals through a vast network of more than 250 clinical affiliates. The hybrid-distributive model will utilize University of Arizona owned facilities, as well as privately owned practices, to expose students to a large, diverse caseload with more real-world hands-on experience and prepare students for their future careers.

During the lecture, Dr. Maciulla will share how the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program will provide a strong foundation in veterinary medicine and surgery while interweaving the professional and clinical skills critical for future success. UA DVM students will graduate understanding veterinary medicine in the context of the whole animal, the environment and society.

Jim Maciulla enjoys being part of an amazing team building an innovative, evidence-based and disruptive model of veterinary education for the great state of Arizona.He's excited to help create successful day-one ready general practitioners that will serve society in the most meaningful ways.
