Looking to use undergraduate studies as a springboard to get into veterinary school? UD’s esteemed pre-veterinary medicine program may be your ticket. Approximately 80% of vet school applicants from this public institution in Newark land a coveted spot – which is twice the national average (40%).
For many students, a highlight of the program is taking a course called Animal and Food Science Experience during UD’s unique 5-week Winter Session. Participants gain hands-on experience at local animal hospitals. With help there from vets and other professional caretakers (many of whom went to UD too), they gain confidence in their technical skills and their ability to interact with all kinds of animals.
