The university is located adjacent
to the cities of Bryan and College Station. The two cities have a combined population
of about 100,000. The student population at Texas A&M is more than 58,000.
The College of
Veterinary Medicine is one of
the 10 original veterinary teaching institutions that existed in the United
States prior to World War II.
The College provides an integrated
professional curriculum that prepares graduates with a firm foundation in the
basic sciences, a broad comparative medicine knowledge base, and the clinical and
personal skills to be leaders in the many career fields of veterinary medicine.
Professional students are given the opportunity to gain additional education
and training in their personal career paths.
Becoming a veterinarian
requires much dedication and diligent study. The veterinary medical student is required
to meet a high level of performance. The demands on students’ time and effort
are considerable, but the rewards and career satisfaction are personal achievements
that make significant contributions to our society.
