The DVTH is comprised of 33 partner veterinary practices across the province of Alberta who participate in hosting our students for mandatory core species clinical rotations. An additional 18 practices offer elective experiences in a wide variety of practice areas and 8 practices offer exclusively rural community practice rotations. The remaining 40% of our final year rotations are offered at the Clinical Skills Building in Calgary and are taught by our on-campus clinical faculty members.
While some rotations are mandatory, students are offered the ability to tailor their own final year program to suit their desired career path in veterinary medicine. The final year DVM program includes 16 weeks of mandatory core species rotations in the DVTH, 10 weeks of training in one of UCVM’s areas of emphasis, 4 weeks of pathology and advanced diagnostic techniques, and 10 weeks of elective rotations.
The Associate Dean, Academic has oversight of the DVTH and the DVM program.
