UAF partners for veterinary program

The University of Alaska Fairbanks will offer graduate veterinary medicine classes beginning in the fall of 2015. The classes are part of a partnership with Colorado State University that will allow Alaskan students to complete a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.

“The partnership makes the program viable, since developing a standalone program would be cost-prohibitive for UAF,” the university said in a statement.

The program will admit 10 students per year. If too few Alaskans apply or meet admission requirements, the program may consider applicants from outside Alaska.

The veterinary program will be part of the UAF College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
