SCHOOL DESCRIPTION

Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM), located in St. Kitts, West Indies, offers an accredited program focused on educating tomorrow’s leaders and discoverers in veterinary medicine. RUSVM holds current accreditation from the St. Kitts and Nevis Accreditation Board and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA; RUSVM’s Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree is accredited by the AVMA Council on Education.). RUSVM is dedicated to providing academic excellence for students as the foundation for becoming sought-after, practice-ready veterinarians for North America and beyond, and has over 3,500 graduates who are successfully practicing veterinary medicine across the US and Canada.

The seven-semester preclinical curriculum is enhanced by hands-on clinical experience to help prepare students for the final year of clinical training at one of RUSVM’s affiliated veterinary schools in the United States or abroad. RUSVM’s faculty have outstanding credentials in teaching and research and share a passion for educating the veterinarians of tomorrow. RUSVM operates on a three-semester per year calendar.

Each semester is 15 full academic weeks, including final exams. RUSVM graduates are eligible to practice veterinary medicine in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico upon completion of the requisite licensing requirements. RUSVM students who are U.S. citizens/permanent residents and meet the Department of Education’s qualifying criteria may be eligible for Federal Stafford Loans and Federal Graduate PLUS Loans.
