our mission

The University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine’s Admissions Committee has developed a strong admissions process in order to select the next generation of veterinarians. The objectives of the admissions committee include the following goals: follow a fair and unbiased, well documented process to select a class of students that possess the academic capability to manage a rigorous science-based curriculum while also demonstrating strong interpersonal and teamwork related communication skills. The selected class should have the potential to enhance the diversity of the veterinary profession through career choice, cultural, ethnic, gender, social-economic, and geographic characteristics.
