Veterinary Medicine Program

Pre-professional track

Veterinarians care for the health of animals and improve public health through their work. As a vet, you'll diagnose and treat injuries and illnesses of pets, livestock, and other animals. Many veterinarians also conduct care and food safety research and perform livestock inspections. By testing animals and their products for known and novel diseases, vets can help develop vaccines and enforce government safety regulations.

Hamline's pre-veterinary medicine program will prepare you with the knowledge you need to apply to vet school and create a powerful beginning to your career as a veterinarian. We make sure you get hands-on experience in the skills that will set you above the rest of the field, and our mentors and advisors will support your continued education with plans and suggestions tailored to your needs.
