The Department of Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge is at the forefront of veterinary science and education and is a centre of excellence for teaching and research. Our mission is to improve the prevention and treatment of diseases of animals by defining and applying best clinical practice, by understanding and developing the science underpinning best practice, and by embedding an education programme in the veterinary sciences that delivers the best veterinary practitioners, academics and research scientists. We thus educate people in the veterinary sciences so that they develop into leading clinicians and researchers. We maintain and develop research excellence in basic and applied biomedical and veterinary sciences and embed our clinical veterinary training in this strong scientific foundation. We aim to produce practitioners, academic clinicians and researchers with an education in veterinary science second to none. Our graduates go on to follow diverse career paths, with many becoming successful practitioners and academic veterinarians, but with many also going on to become leading biomedical researchers. Many prestigious posts in the various branches of the veterinary profession are occupied by Cambridge graduates. We also run the Queen's Veterinary Hospital, offering the best professional care as a teaching and a referral hospital.
