Event Description

The UCD School of Veterinary Medicine is one of the leading Veterinary Schools in Europe, and it has also been granted full accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). The AVMA educational standards of excellence are recognised worldwide as the ‘gold standard’ in veterinary education. The UCD School of Veterinary Medicine is located in the purpose-designed Veterinary Sciences Centre, which encompasses the UCD Veterinary Hospital, on the main UCD campus at Belfield. The UCD Veterinary Hospital offers a range of high-quality veterinary services for both farm and companion animals and this caseload provides very important opportunities for our students to complete their clinical training requirements. Our state-of-the-art facilities and position on the campus of a major research-intensive university allow us to push back the frontiers of knowledge in veterinary research, thus advancing animal health, animal welfare and human health. This research informs our educational programmes, ensuring that all of our students, whether studying to be veterinary nurses, veterinarians, veterinary specialists, or for advanced research degrees, receive a world-class education. The MVB will educate you to the best international standards in veterinary medicine. To work as a vet in the Republic of Ireland, you must have a degree in Veterinary Medicine, which is registered by the Veterinary Council of Ireland. UCD’s Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine (MVB) is Ireland’s only such degree. The veterinary profession is concerned with the promotion of the health and welfare of animals of special importance to society. This involves the care of healthy and sick animals, the prevention, recognition, control and treatment of their diseases and of diseases transmitted from animals to man, and the welfare and productivity of livestock.
