Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine


Dean


Dear Alumni, Friends, and Prospective Students,

Welcome to the Oklahoma State University (OSU) Center for Veterinary Health Sciences. Each year we update our Fact Sheet which contains valuable information and statistics about our academic programs.

The year 2008 marks the 60th anniversary of our College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1948 we opened the doors to the then Oklahoma A&M College’s School of Veterinary Medicine. In 1951 our first class of 26 men graduated. Now the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine enrolls 82 new students each year, the majority being women. Our first-year class is composed of 58 Oklahoma residents and 24 non-residents. Check out a moving history of our first 50 years by viewing A Golden Era of Education, Research, and Service. You can see a presentation shown during our 60th Anniversary Cowboy Roundup that focuses on the last ten years.

The Center for Veterinary Health Sciences encompasses the College of Veterinary Medicine (opened 1948), the Oklahoma Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (opened in 1976), and the Boren Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (opened 1981). In addition, Center facilities include the Veterinary Medicine Ranch, the Equine Research Park, the Wendell Wallace Bovine Research Facility, and the Cohn Family Shelter for Pets.
We are a community of scholars committed to graduating highly skilled primary care veterinarians; to leading the nation in basic and applied biomedical research; and to providing the best veterinary services to our clients.

Our core-elective curriculum emphasizes comparative medicine of all major animal species. Our students are reputed to be confident, competent, practice ready veterinarians upon graduation, thanks to an excellent teaching faculty, dedicated staff and talented students.
Our research program is nationally competitive, highly focused, and productive. Major areas of emphasis include toxicology, infectious diseases including zoonotic and tick transmitted diseases, shipping fever, and exercise physiology. The Veterinary Center leads the OSU System in funding from the National Institutes of Health. We rank 11/28 of the U.S. veterinary colleges when sponsored research expenditures are compared to state appropriations. We rank 15/28 for sponsored research expenditures per faculty headcount.

My pride in the OSU Center for Veterinary Health Sciences is both personal and professional. The excellent reputation of our college results from the successes of our alumni, faculty, students, and staff. We are aggressively seeking funding for several capital improvement projects that are essential to our future growth and success.
I encourage prospective students, faculty candidates and other interested professionals to consider Oklahoma State University for an exemplary experience. You will become part of a fine tradition of excellence, a tradition involving people in the veterinary profession who keep meeting the challenges of the 21st Century.
