Combined Degree Program Pathway
Combined DVM/PhD Degree Program Pathway
The Combined DVM/PhD Degree Program Pathway prepares students to become leaders in science, medicine and teaching. The program pathway integrates the veterinary and graduate curricula to enable the student to complete both degrees in less time than it would to do them independently. It also enables them to bring a basic scientific approach to the veterinary training and leads to careers in academia, industry, and government service.
Students applying to the Combined DVM/PhD Degree Program Pathway will complete the VMCAS Application along with an added section that collects additional information about your research. Three additional evaluations are required for the Combined DVM/PhD degree applicants. GRE's are not required for the DVM application or the Combined Degree application. Additional information about the Combined DVM/PhD Degree Program Pathway and the admissions process can be found at Combined (DVM/PhD) Degree
