Vet Medicine Schools in Florida

Only 28 vet medicine schools exist across the United States and the University of Florida is the only one in Florida. As a result of the limited number of spots available, vet medicine schools are extremely competitive and difficult to get admitted into. To assist students in applying to the University of Florida or any other vet school, several Florida universities also provide excellent pre-vet programs.

  1. University of Florida

    • The University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine is the only vet medicine school in the state of Florida. The school had its first graduating class receive their DVM degrees in 1980. The program focuses strongly on research and provides education on state-of-the-art patient care. UF College of Veterinary Medicine also provides M.S. or Ph.D. degrees to students who are interested in clinical research. The school is very selective in its candidates and admits only 88 students out of around 900 applicants each year.
