About our programs
The DVM educational program is a four year program. Students come to us usually with a bachelor's degree or a four year degree before entering veterinary school. We're lucky to have a very large applicant pool composed both of residents from Minnesota and non-residents from around the country. We have a number of educational programs at the college including the Doctor of VM degree (DVM), a Masters or PhD degree, and a DVM/MPH joint degree.
