Doctor of Veterinary Science

The Doctor of Veterinary Science (DVSc) program is a unique post-professional degree for graduates with a DVM degree or equivalent, offered in all four academic departments. 

The program provides advanced training and research on an applied clinical problem at the doctoral level and requires the defense of a thesis. Program duration is 9 semesters. Approximately two thirds of the effort will be directed toward advanced discipline training (including courses) and one third toward research.
