If you want to make a difference in the lives of animals, the College of Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State is a great place to start. Its Animal Health Center serves over 29,000 small animals, exotics, wildlife, horses, and livestock animals each year, so students get plenty of hands-on training to complement their top-notch academic studies. The university also is committed to advancing the discipline through student research and outreach – from administering vaccinations at local animal shelters to spending the summer in Uganda studying animal health challenges . You may even find yourself learning how to make models of spinal and skull injuries using the latest 3-D printer technology. Historically, the College of Veterinary Medicine has awarded the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree and masters/doctoral degrees in specialized fields of veterinary medical science. But in 2010, the College began offering a bachelor’s in veterinary medical technology in response to a national shortage of qualified workers in this field. Years later, the program still reports 100 percent job placement of graduates.
