Applicants from the North American Model of Education
A successful candidate will have documented time spent in veterinary medical practice, preferably with large and small animal species. While we do not require a minimum number of hours, it is in the student’s best interest to gain as much exposure as possible. This demonstrates a level of commitment that will act to enhance the application. Experience in other areas of veterinary medicine are also acceptable, such as research and regulatory work.

Applications for advanced standing are rarely considered, and only for the beginning of the second year of the four-year veterinary medical program. The Committee on Admission does not seek or encourage transfer applications. A candidate seeking advanced standing should write to the Chairman of the Committee on Admission to determine whether an application will be considered. The letter should include the citizenship of the candidate, the prior veterinary medical school with years attended, a brief summary of academic achievement, and the reason for leaving. Should the Committee on Admission consider the application, the candidate will be notified of the procedures for application.
