Veterinary Medicine: Home


The Department of Veterinary Medicine is at the forefront of veterinary science and education and is a centre of excellence for teaching and research. We are a large, multidisciplinary department whose scientific activities are fully integrated into those of the whole University.  Our mission is to improve the prevention and treatment of diseases of animals by defining and applying best clinical practice, by understanding and developing the science underpinning best practice, and by embedding an education programme in the veterinary sciences that delivers the best veterinary practitioners, academics and research scientists.
