Advancing the health
and well-being
of animals
and people









The Department of Clinical Sciences is largely composed of residency trained veterinarians who are board certified in a clinical specialty. The department endeavors to balance its three-fold missions of teaching, service and research. The department is dedicated to excellence in teaching and contributes to classroom and laboratory teaching throughout the curriculum. In addition, most faculty members provide substantial effort towards clinical training of DVM professional students, interns and residents through their professional service in the Cornell University Hospital for Animals. Lastly, the department values both clinical and basic research and strives to enhance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of animal disease, promote animal health and productivity, and take advantage of our unique access to naturally-occurring clinical disease in order to explore mechanisms of  fundamental importance to biomedical science.
