SCHOOL DESCRIPTION

The University of Florida is located in Gainesville, a college town of approximately 125,000 in north cen­tral Florida, midway between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Changes in season are marked, but winters are mild and permit year-round participation in outdoor activities.

The university accommodates about 50,000+ students with programs in almost all disciplines. The College of Veterinary Medicine is a com­ponent of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (which also includes Agricul­ture and Forest Resources and Conservation). It is also one of 6 colleges affiliated with the Health Science Center (the other 5 are Dentistry, Public Health and Health Profes­sions, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy).

The veterinary curriculum is a 9-semester program con­sisting of core curriculum and elective experiences. The core provides the body of knowledge and skills com­mon to all veterinarians. The first 4 semesters concen­trate primarily on basic medical sciences. Students are additionally introduced to physical diagnosis, radiol­ogy, and clinical problems during these years. The core also includes experience in each of the clinical areas. Elective areas of concentration permit students to in­vestigate further the aspects of both basic and clinical sciences most relevant to their interests.
