 Dean’s Message

Welcome to the Faculty of Veterinary medicine which has been established 2012

Our Faculty offers an innovative program that graduates veterinarians who are career ready. We use a problem-based approach that stimulates contextual learning and promotes scientific inquiry.  Our curriculum develops graduates that are capable of leading and being a part of an efficient health care team, providing excellent patient care, and collaboratively serve in the best interests of the public health.

Faculty of Veterinary Medicine also capitalizes on its strategic partnerships to send students into 16 different veterinary enterprises or experiences in their third year of study, and eight or more in their fourth year. These carefully planned — and closely supervised — experiences occur with specialists in a real work environment designed to continue the problem-based

Approach used in the first two years of the curriculum. These real world experiences related to patient care should not be confused with job shadowing or apprenticeships. They are planned, monitored, and assessed. The result is that Gollis University FVM students often average 10 times the clinical skills experiences – and sometimes more – than those in other veterinary medicine programs. Most importantly, since students are exposed to clinical skills required in a real work environment – they are prepared for real work the day after they graduate.

It begins only nothing but now faculty has three effective and modern laboratories (Parasitology Laboratory, Bacteriology laboratory Anatomy Laboratory) as well as digital library and research center.

Our College of Veterinary Medicine takes pride in being a force for social good. Our graduates are known not only as great veterinarians, but for their enthusiasm and willingness to improve the health of their communities, and for their commitment not only to their animal patients, but to their fellow human beings.
