The Priorities for the College of Veterinary Medicine

As the only comprehensive veterinary referral center in Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia, Ohio State’s Veterinary Medical Center provides exceptional animal care, offered by our senior students and expert veterinarians. We have the largest Clinical Trials Office in the country, working to discover better treatments for animals. Our signature research programs in infectious diseases and cancer will improve the health of people and animals. Innovative discoveries occur every day in our specialty areas, which include orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, oncology, ophthalmology, dermatology and many more.

Yet our aging medical facilities are inadequate.

To improve patient care, maintain our strong programs, and continue to recruit the best and brightest faculty, students, interns, and residents, we must expand and make substantial enhancements to the VMC. Please join us in our efforts to make this plan a reality.
