Welcome to the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, one of three academic departments in the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University. An integral part of a leading public land grant institution, our College is a core component of one of the most comprehensive health sciences centers in the world.
The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences combines the following disciplines into a cohesive academic unit:
Our Department is committed to developing and maintaining outstanding programs and services. This includes robust and relevant basic, applied, and translational research to improve animal health and well-being; state-of-the-art clinical veterinary medicine for ill and injured animals; excellent client care and communication, and exceptional consultation and referral services to private veterinary practitioners; leading-edge interdisciplinary teaching in the veterinary medical and post-professional (internship, residency and graduate) programs; and meaningful and relevant outreach and engagement activities that benefit the community, veterinary profession and society.
Collegiality, civility, mutual support, and respect for others are strongly held values in the Department and College. We support diverse beliefs and the free exchange of ideas, and we expect that faculty, staff, and students promote these values and apply them in a professional manner in all academic endeavors to facilitate an enriching workplace and learning environment and scholarly achievement. We are committed to providing excellent career development and mentoring programs for our faculty, staff and students to nurture professional and personal success and satisfaction.
Our world-class faculty, dedicated and skilled staff, and extraordinary veterinary and post-professional students combined with our collective core values, guiding principles and strategic plan are of fundamental importance to fulfilling our mission and key to attaining our bold vision of advancing from excellence to eminence.
This year, we are excited to announce the 40th anniversary of the Department of Clinical Sciences, which was founded in 1970 by the merging of three other departments. The Department has a rich tradition of excellence, and I invite you to explore the history and highlights about our accomplishments over the last 40 years on our anniversary page. In keeping with the results of our successful and constructive departmental academic program review, we plan to use the information to build upon past accomplishments and to develop and implement innovative ideas to advance all aspects of our programs, just as was done forty years ago. We look forward to celebrating this momentous year by continuing to make meaningful contributions to the advancement of clinical veterinary medicine through excellence in teaching, clinical and translational research, and leading-edge veterinary medical care well into the future.
I encourage you to explore the many exciting opportunities the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and the College of Veterinary Medicine have to offer.
