Looking to better understand your path to Veterinary Medicine? Our pre-vet advisor is here to help!

The journey to Veterinary Medicine is different for each individual, whether they are a traditional applicant heading straight from undergrad into the DVM program, or a non-traditional applicant who has taken time off from college. Pre-vet advising is a time to examine each applicant’s story and explore how to write the next chapter of their lives!

Any student who is interested in joining the UF College of Veterinary Medicine’s DVM program is encouraged to seek advising to present the best application possible for enrollment. Please note, pre-vet advising is not academic advising. Should you need help planning your class schedule or signing up for courses please seek the assistance of an undergraduate advisor. The University of Florida does not have a “pre-vet” major. Students interested in becoming veterinarians should seek majors they are interested in and can provide them with opportunities to complete the UFCVM prerequisite coursework.

Appointments* are available through: in-person, Skype, or phone.

*Appointments for pre-vet advising are more appropriate for seniors in high school or college students who are registering for undergraduate courses and have more opportunities to gain pre-veterinary experience due to their age. Students in middle/high school are welcome to call the pre-vet advising office (352-294-8254) to address specific questions about our program. Below you will find resources for high school students as they prepare to achieve their goals!
