Earning your DVM from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) offers you much more than a path to animal practice. It unlocks a much larger world of far-reaching career opportunities in veterinary medicine, from companion and exotic animal care, to research that could affect animal and human health on a global scale. From general practitioners, to researchers, and more, there's a world of possibilities out there to explore.

A Versatile Program in Veterinary Medicine

Since our founding in 1982, RUSVM—proudly accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education (AVMA-COE)—has graduated more than 4,000 veterinarians, many practicing in every US state, in Canada and Puerto Rico, and abroad.

At our technologically advanced campus in St. Kitts, you will be challenged by an accelerated, broad-based curriculum that integrates unique research opportunities, classroom study, and hands-on clinical training. Our faculty have outstanding credentials in teaching and research, and share a passion for educating the veterinarians of tomorrow.

Clinical training is completed at one of our affiliated AVMA-accredited veterinary schools in the US, Canada, or other international location. Our roster of affiliated institutions includes many of the top veterinary schools in the US.
