UF CVM offers advanced training at the MS level to veterinarians or professionals with a bachelor’s degree.
New graduates join the professional workforce in the private sector (e.g., specialized veterinary practice in dairy herd health and reproduction, aquatic animal health), in government (wildlife disease surveillance and risk management, aquatic animal health), or pursue a PhD degree at UF or other university in the United States or abroad.
Most of our MS students on campus complete their training within two years. The MS degree in VMS requires completion of a research thesis and 30 credits in graduate coursework.
