Baker Institute for Animal Health
The Baker Institute for Animal Health has been conducting research promoting advancements in companion animal health for over 70 years. Learn more about the role of the Institute within the College of Veterinary Medicine and how the Institute is helping to shape the landscape of veterinary research.
Cornell Feline Health Center
The Cornell Feline Health Center is recognized as a world leader in promoting feline-focused research, education and outreach. Learn more about how the Center partners with veterinarians and cat lovers to create a healthier, happier future for cats everywhere.
Biomedical & Biological Sciences Program
Our PhD Program is an interdisciplinary program consisting of outstanding graduate students conducting state-of-the-art basic, clinical and translational life sciences research alongside their world-renowned faculty mentors and other research professionals. Housed in the heart of biomedical research at the Cornell-Ithaca campus in the College of Veterinary Medicine, the BBS program takes advantage of outstanding research facilities, the vibrant Cornell undergraduate campus and strong links to the Weill Cornell Medical College campus in New York City.
Center for Veterinary Business and Entrepreneurship
The Cornell Center for Veterinary Business and Entrepreneurship’s mission is to lead innovative education, research, and outreach initiatives to identify, develop and promote best practices in business management to improve animal and human health. The College of Veterinary Medicine partnered with the Cornell University SC Johnson College of Business in 2019 to establish the Center for Veterinary Business and Entrepreneurship. The center strategically recruited three core faculty members with expertise in business management and economics to focus on the scholarship and advancement of veterinary business as a discipline. In addition, the center expands the breadth and depth of its expertise through cross-campus collaborations with faculty, disciplines and programs sharing similar interests.
Educational Support Services
Educational Support Services creates high-quality learning resources and continuing education events. Sitting at the intersection of education and technology, we support CVM faculty and staff on issues of teaching, learning and related technologies. The ESS team also develops continuing education experiences that bring our faculty’s expertise to the broader world. We seek to connect faculty with the platforms, opportunities, techniques to make a lasting impact and improve the field of veterinary education.
Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Program
Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine is a proud recipient of funding from Maddie's® Fund (www.maddiesfund.org), helping to achieve a no-kill nation #ThanksToMaddie. It is also one of few veterinary colleges offering a comprehensive shelter medicine program. Faculty teach classes, offer a rotation for veterinary students in their clinical year, train new shelter veterinarians through an intensive one-year internship, engage in consultations with animal shelter and humane organizations, and conduct applied, clinical research in shelters.
Master of Public Health Program
Many of the most challenging problems we face, including the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change, arise from the unsustainable ways that people interact with the environment, and the inequitable ways that people interact with each other. Our Program uses a One Health systems approach, which recognizes that human health depends upon the health of our environment. This approach gives our students the skills they need to examine upstream influences and downstream effects, and then design, implement, and test public health interventions that are sustainable for people and planet. Our three foundational pillars—Sustainability, Equity, and Engagement—inform our approach to teaching, research, service, and practice. Our small class sizes and engaged-learning approach give our students uncommon flexibility in developing the skills they need to make an impact in their desired careers; and, by working with community partners, our students turn theory into practice, producing deliverables of real value and preparing to become future leaders of the public health workforce. Cornell’s highly collaborative, dynamic environment allows students, faculty, and partners to draw upon diverse, world-class strengths to advance health and wellbeing, equitably for all people and sustainably for our planet.
Department of Public & Ecosystem Health
The Department of Public & Ecosystem Health represents a bold new approach in academia. Rather than organize around a common discipline or approach, Public & Ecosystem Health brings public health professionals, biophysical and social scientists, and veterinarians together using a transdisciplinary systems approach to address three of the world’s greatest challenges: achieving healthy food systems, tackling emerging health threats (e.g. climate change, emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, and environmental justice), and conserving biodiversity. We seek not only to understand these wicked problems through research, but also to address them directly through public health and clinical veterinary practice.
Cornell Riney Canine Health Center
The Cornell Margaret and Richard Riney Canine Health Center is dedicated to improving the lives of dogs, helping them to live longer, healthier and happier lives. We do this through research, outreach and engagement. The Cornell Riney Canine Health Center is a network of faculty and staff within the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine working together to promote the health of dogs around the world. The center is supported by a team of over 50 researchers, joined across six academic departments, the Baker Institute for Animal Health, two large veterinary medical centers and the Animal Health Diagnostic Center. We are also excited to leverage the center to build interdisciplinary connections with other colleges across the Cornell campus, Weill Cornell Medicine and Cornell Tech to create truly innovative solutions.
Offices of Wellbeing, Human Resources and Student & Academic Services
At CVM, we recognize the importance of fostering a culture where faculty, staff, and students can thrive in every area of their lives through active participation in the wellbeing process. In a variety of ways, and in collaboration with a multitude of college, university, local, and industry partners the Offices of Student and Academic Services, and Human Resources, and the Wellbeing Program all strive to support the seven dimensions of wellbeing among our community members, which include: mental, relationship, physical, cultural, environmental, occupational, and financial health.
