Pre-Veterinary Undergraduate Courses

Program Summary


The Veterinary Technology program at Florida A&M University is a four-year degree program which trains students to provide medical and nonmedical support to veterinarians.  Our program emphasizes not only small animal medicine, but also large animal, food animal, and regulatory medicine.  During the first two years in the program, students will concentrate on core science requirements.  The final two years students will apply veterinary concepts at the FAMU Animal Health Complex in Quincy, Florida and at local clinics and animal facilities.  Our facility is located on 260 acres which houses cattle, horses, pigs, chickens and goats.   In the summer of 2016 a new facility to house a new surgical suite, prep room, anatomy lab, and small animal holding will be completed.


The Veterinary Technology Program has strong affiliations with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), the state diagnostic labs, and other regulatory agencies, which provides opportunities for FAMU students to gain knowledge in alternative careers in veterinary medicine, and opportunities to complete externships at these sites.


The Veterinary Technology program received initial accreditation from AVMA October 2013.
