About

Find out more information about Veterinary Medicine

Veterinary medicine is a branch of health care science and deals with the well-being of animals, including pets, food animals, horses and wild animals. This field covers diagnosis, therapy, prevention of diseases and injuries, as well as narrow fields such as blood transfusions.

Veterinary medicine studies begin with a Bachelor’s degree in life sciences, zoology, biology and others and should continue with a Master’s degree in veterinary medicine or a PhD. Students usually specialize in certain fields such as physiotherapy or dentistry or in groups of species. By monitoring and constantly improving the health of animals, public health is also maintained. Medicine schools and colleges offer competitive degrees for students passionate about animals, preparing them in both theoretical and practical expertise.

Graduates can become researchers focused on developing treatments and medicines for animals or practitioners who are known as veterinary physicians or vets. Career prospects are wide in the field and range from science teachers, marine biologists, park managers, zoo animal care specialists, to veterinary pathologists or animal assisted therapists.
