Veterinarians are important health professionals who are employed in a variety of settings including privately owned practices, group practices, and government or industrial facilities. This area of study is designed to prepare students who plan to apply for admission to veterinary school. Students who have not already earned a B.S. or B.A. will apply to veterinary school after transferring to a four-year college or university. In many colleges, students must choose a major other than pre-veterinary medicine. Students often select a major which will provide an alternative career route should they change their occupational plans. The pre-veterinary curriculum prepares students for veterinary school as well as for bachelor’s degrees in the life sciences, chemistry, or related fields. Pre-veterinary students should obtain a copy of admissions requirements for U.S. and Canadian veterinary schools available through the American Veterinary Medical Colleges, 1522 K Street, Washington, D.C. 20036.
