College creates opportunities for students to learn in and out of the classroom

A significant component of the new curriculum is providing opportunities for students beginning the first week of their first year to have regular and recurring hands-on experiences outside the classroom, giving them a broader understanding of their future careers and preparing them to be confident and competent practice-ready veterinarians.
