Course Descriptions: DVM Program

The Western College of Veterinary Medicine's four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program prepares students to meet the needs of animal health care in Western Canada and beyond.

During the program's first two years, students focus on basic and applied science core courses. In their third year, students gain more in-depth information in particular interest areas through elective courses. Students gain clinical experience during their final year, completing a series of two- or four-week practical rotations in a range of disciplines and interest areas.
