The Hill's Pet Nutrition Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC) operates both as a fully functional veterinary clinic and an educational facility for all veterinary students within the Ontario Veterinary College.

In the PHC, students will contribute their skills and knowledge in providing care to companion animal patients and their owners, guided by the other members of the healthcare delivery team (veterinarians, technicians and upper-­year students).

The centre brings a unique focus to achieving the necessary skills of primary healthcare in veterinary medicine. As students progress through the DVM curriculum, their skills and knowledge will increase and therefore their roles in the PHC evolve.   

Through practical experience, students are able to use hands-on learning to become skilled in evaluating and treating the types of problems they will encounter from the first day they enter practice. As veterinary graduates, OVC ensures graduates enter the workforce with the direct experiences they need to hit the ground running.
