The University of Missouri is the only institution in the state to award the doctor of veterinary medicine degree, graduating approximately 115 new veterinarians each year. There are more than 4,000 alumni of the MU College of Veterinary Medicine who have been successful in their chosen areas of the profession. Many have become involved in community affairs by becoming members of school boards or city councils, and mayors of towns and cities. Some have been elected to state legislative bodies. Still other alumni have had prominent roles in the federal government, or advanced to leadership roles in veterinary medical colleges in teaching, research and as administrators. Our alumni have held offices in state and national veterinary medical associations. In the past 20 years, four of the presidents of the American Veterinary Medical Association, which represents approximately 88,000 veterinarians, were MU College of Veterinary Medicine graduates.
Our success in educating the next generation of veterinarians depends on our alumni and friends, and we are grateful for your support. We welcome your suggestions and feedback. Please feel free to contact us and let us know how we can better serve you, the animal-owning public, our state and our profession.
