Pre-Veterinary Medicince

Advisor: Robert A. Eckstein

Veterinary medicine is one of the fastest growing professions in the country, and Warren Wilson College graduates have been very successful in gaining admission to schools of veterinary medicine. Students may fulfill the entrance requirements for veterinary schools by earning a B.S. degree in Biology or Chemistry. Veterinary schools expect applicants to have had experience in studying and caring for animals, and pre-vet students work on the Farm crew for two years, caring for and managing all aspects of the pig and cattle herds. The combination of a good academic background, Farm Crew experience, and the discipline from the Warren Wilson College Triad educational program benefit the student in applying to veterinary medicine programs and in future professional work. An additional strength of the pre-veterinary medicine program at Warren Wilson College is that the pre-veterinary advisor is a licensed veterinarian with a Ph.D. in animal behavior.
