Education, training, and service in anatomy, radiology, and clinical behavioral medicine

The Department of Biomedical Sciences provides education, resident training, and clinical service in the disciplines of anatomy, histology, diagnostic imaging, and behavioral medicine.

We teach courses in diagnostic imaging as part of the DVM curriculum and perform a critical service function to the veterinary teaching hospital providing imaging services for large animal, small animal, and exotic species.

We offer a competitive post-DVM radiology residency program. This three-year American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) accredited residency program provides training and preparation for the certification examination of the ACVR. Throughout the program, our residents are exposed to all of our top-notch technologies. 

Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Biomedical Sciences is to support College and departmental goals by providing the highest possible level of professional and graduate veterinary medical education, resident training, and clinical service in the disciplines of anatomy, histology, radiology, and animal behavior; to develop quality basic and clinical research efforts that are applicable to these fields; and, to provide outstanding veterinary service and extension efforts to the citizens of Georgia and the region.
