Faculty of Veterinary Medicine
Bringing innovation and community together to advance animal and human health
The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is becoming a leader among research-intensive North American veterinary colleges for the quality of our research programs and their engagement of undergraduate and graduate students. We continue to support a broad base of research excellence across disciplines with areas of strength in cattle health, infectious disease, pain and animal welfare, equine health, wildlife heath, reproduction and regenerative medicine, and veterinary education. Our programs align with the University of Calgary's Eyes High strategy to become a top 5 research-intensive university that graduates global leaders infused with research.
The UCVM research community follows the philosophy: bring innovation and community together to advance animal and human health, and the facilities found within our two campuses help to bring that idea to life. The UCVM faculty utilizes the various resources located at both the Foothills and Spy Hill campuses to advance our research mission.
The Frontiers In Veterinary Medicine (FIVM) Seminar Series highlights each of our seven strategic research priority areas and exposes the UCVM community to internationally recognized researchers and innovators within the areas of veterinary and comparative medicine and research.
