The College of Veterinary Medicine is respected for its quality education. Whether you are earning a DVM or PhD (or both through the Cornell Dual DVM/PhD Degree Program), are a practicing veterinarian, or simply want to learn in a variety of ways, Cornell has just the program for you. Graduate fields of study for a master of science (MS) or a doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree include comparative biomedical sciences, immunology, pharmacology, physiology, and zoology. An interdisciplinary approach to learning is employed. Here is information about the many graduate programs, how to become a Dual DVM/PhD Degree student, and graduate research assistant opportunities. Our College offers internship and residency programs in Pathology and several clinical specialty areas, including: Small and Large Animal Medicine and Surgery, Ambulatory medicine, Ophthalmology, Radiology, Radiation and Medical Oncology, Anesthesiology, and Theriogenology. The Robert W. Kirk DVM '46 Practitioner-in-Residence Endowment was established in 2007 by a gift from Ernest Smith DVM '66 and his wife, Abby, to fund private-practice veterinarians who wish to visit Cornell University Hospital for Animals, in either the large or small animal hospitals, for 3-5 days per week, for periods ranging from two weeks to three months. The Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine is one of the most valued providers of continuing education opportunities for the veterinary community. From our annual veterinary conferences to subject-specific conferences, there are many options to keep you on the cutting edge of your field under the guidance of Cornell's world renowned and award-winning faculty. The Cornell University Hospital for Animals offers externships for veterinary students in their final or next-to-final year, observation opportunities for practicing veterinarians, farrier training, and clinical experience for the Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates certification. Our integrated website for veterinary students provides access to up-to date course information, room and rounds schedules, academic and student events calendars, and a variety of educational resources, including the library. It also has links to student services, financial aid, the registrar, career development, and student organizations.
