Academics Description

The Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine DVM program is an outcome- and competency-based, integrated, core-elective program that serves multiple learning styles and engages community-based learning in the teaching of veterinary medicine.

Students will spend their first three years on the Amarillo campus and at Mariposa Station gaining the skill, knowledge, and competencies to be successful in their clinical year. The fourth year clinical experience is in a distributed veterinary learning community of clinical practice partners located primarily in Texas.

Students will have a very hands-on education with special focus on primary veterinary care to make them confident and competent to practice veterinary medicine at graduation.

Per the published curriculum for the SVM, full-time status for students per term is the equivalent of 12 credits.
