The Veterinary Technician Program has been designed to develop personnel capable of assisting veterinarians in large animal practices, small animal practices, laboratory animal situations, and related veterinary medical activities. The curriculum provides a sound foundation in basic veterinary technology and promotes habit of mind that inspires students to continue their education. Through coursework, skill acquisition, and meaningful clinical experiences, the graduate will be a productive employee at the entry level and will have the capabilities to perform satisfactorily in positions of increasing responsibility. The program is accredited by the American Medical Association (AVMA), and the Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (CVTEA).

Veterinary Technology is not designed as a preparatory program for those students who wish to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine.

Prospective Students may contact any Veterinary Technology faculty member for information and advising.
