Clinical Competencies

The Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine (OSU CVM) indicates that the individual is a veterinarian who is competent to practice veterinary medicine and is generally capable to apply for veterinary medical licensure. All CVM students are required to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to provide safe and effective veterinary medical care. Thus, each candidate for admission and each continuing student must possess and maintain the skills, qualities and attributes required to practice direct patient care regardless of his or her intended career pathway.
