DVM Degree Program

The University of Alaska Fairbanks has partnered with Colorado State University, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.  UAF annually admits 10 students into the program where students do their first two years at UAF then move to Colorado for their final two years. Admission to the veterinary medicine program at Colorado State is open to all students. Hands-on experience, from day one, alongside world-class faculty in an atmosphere designed to help you succeed make the Colorado State University veterinary program unique.

Program of Study

  • Years 1 and 2 include comprehensive biomedical and veterinary sciences and veterinary education with hands-on experience at UAF’s new facilities.
  • Years 3 and 4 students must attend CSU-CVMBS to work in the clinical Veterinary Teaching Hospital through a series of rotations.  Students are full care team members, not bystanders.
  • Future education can be acquired through a three-year specialty residency.
