Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine

The School of Veterinary Medicine was begun to address the critical shortage of veterinarians in small and agricultural communities throughout Texas. The first veterinary school in Texas in 100 years, the school is located in Amarillo, the heart of our nation's livestock industry. Graduates will be career-ready veterinarians ready to serve the State of Texas.
