UGA College of Veterinary Medicine - Passion Powers our Commitment

At the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine, we’re driven by a deep and powerful passion to define and deliver all that veterinary medicine can, and should, be.


We welcome people from different backgrounds, hometowns, and points of view, leveraging those perspectives to help shape the future of animal and human health. We educate and elevate our students, transforming them into legions of highly-trained doctors and tenacious researchers who are driven to serve their communities. We explore and discover and dream up and test out new ways to care for and protect animals and humans. We’re invested in every sense of the word: in people, in connections, in facilities, and in research.

We love this work, this challenge, and this responsibility—it’s what we were born to do. We’re UGA Vet Med and our passion powers our commitment. Care to join us?
