Welcome to OVC! Now that you are considering a career in Veterinary medicine, it is important to plan for it while you are still in high school.

The first thing to note is that you cannot apply to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree program straight from high school.

You will need to take at least two years of a bachelor's degree within which you must take the eight prerequisite courses required.

To help you as you explore your options, we've prepared and FAQ document specifically for students still in high school. If you would like to know more, please download the FAQs.
