PATHWAY PROGRAMS


International Students

The Pathway Programs offers eligible students from partner universities and colleges a clear educational path into the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM).

The Program is designed to advance the educational opportunities of eligible students by offering them direct admission opportunities when applying to RUSVM, provided they meet the eligibility criteria as outlined from the partner intuitions.

Veterinary medicine encompasses many areas of scholarship—from basic science to applied clinical medicine and surgery. It includes training in One Health, which studies the relationships between human, domestic animal, wildlife and environmental health.  A degree can lead to a variety of career opportunities—transportable to any country in the world—including all aspects of food production, safety and security, biomedical and veterinary research, the animal health industry, government service, wildlife and conservation medicine, and private and public practice.
