The veterinary medical program is delivered with a number of entry options: the
seven-, six- and five-year programs which begin with the Pre-Veterinary medical sciences and an option to enter directly into the four-year veterinary medical program. This enables student’s flexible entry points depending upon their academic backgrounds. Students accepted into the Pre-Veterinary medical sciences are placed in the appropriate program option (either the
seven-, six or five-year program track) according to their academic background and are enrolled in the veterinary medical program for five to seven years. Applicants accepted directly into the veterinary medical sciences generally complete the program in four years.
The DVM program is conducted on the University’s main campus on the True Blue peninsula of Grenada, West Indies, except for the final year which is the clinical year spent at an affiliated AVMA-accredited School of Veterinary Medicine. These schools are located in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia.
