Clinical training program in affiliated US, UK, Canada and Republic of Ireland Veterinary Schools.
Year 4 consists of 48 weeks of clinical training at one of our 29 affiliated AVMA-accredited veterinary schools: 20 weeks of instruction in seven core subjects and 28 weeks of electives that may be a continuation of core subjects or concentrations in select specialties.
The clinical core subjects include a minimum of four weeks each in small animal medicine and small animal surgery, six weeks of large animal medicine and surgery; and two weeks each in diagnostic laboratory, clinical anesthesiology, and diagnostic imaging. The remaining weeks of the clinical program are made up of elective rotations (clinical rotations) and externships approved by the affiliated schools.
All first and second year electives are available to third year students. In addition to available electives, sixth term students are offered a variety of specialty courses. Sixth-term students must select two of the following one-credit courses during their final semester of preclinical coursework:

Students wishing to sit the RCVS statutory examination are encouraged to study this track. The Global Health Track includes all of the same material as the traditional DVM program, but with these extra components:
The courses listed below are intermittently offered to graduate students, DVM students enrolled in a dual degree or veterinary research programs to any veterinary student as an elective. A complete listing of all graduate courses can be obtained via the School of Graduate Studies.
