SCHOOL DESCRIPTION

Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (Ross), located in St. Kitts, West Indies, offers an accredited DVM program focused on educating tomorrow’s leaders and discoverers in veterinary medicine. Ross holds current accreditation from the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA*) and the St. Kitts and Nevis Accreditation Board. At Ross, our passion is training students to become the next generation of career-ready, compassionate veterinarians. Our 4000+ graduates are successfully practicing veterinary medicine across the US, Canada and beyond.

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 Ross’s 32 AVMA-accredited schools in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland. Ross’s faculty have outstanding credentials in teaching and research and share a passion for educating the veterinarians of tomorrow. Ross operates on a three-semester per year calendar.

Each semester is 15 full academic weeks, including final exams. Ross graduates are eligible to practice veterinary medicine in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico upon completion of the requisite licensing requirements. Ross 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.
