Coordinator of Pre-Vet and Veterinary Student Affairs
Dr. Todd O’Hara, Ph.D., DVM, DABVT is a Professor of Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology and Coordinator of Pre-Vet/Veterinary Student Services. Dr. O'Hara will work with undergraduates (and High School students) who wish to become veterinarians.
Dr. O’Hara works closely with CSU-CVMBS and has had students accepted there and to other Veterinary Colleges in the United States and Canada. CSU has a list of prerequisite courses and credits available (http://csu-cvmbs.colostate.edu/Documents/dvm-preparatory-coursework-guide.pdf) and UAF has the necessary courses to meet this prerequisite requirement. Alaska has several pathways for Pre-Vet students.
Students are encouraged to take the upper level biomedical science courses such as microbiology, cell biology, anatomy, physiology, histology, nutrition and other advanced biomedical sciences to improve their applications for the veterinary program. If you wish to set up an appointment, would like Dr. O'Hara to speak to your class, or for more information please do not hesitate to contact the Department of Veterinary Medicine (UAF-Vet-Med@alaska.edu).
