LMU-CVM is seeking to attract and train future veterinarians to serve the needs of rural communities throughout the United States and especially the southern Appalachian region. We are currently seeking bright, hard-working students whose goal is to advance the science and art of veterinary medicine wherever they choose to enter professional practice. It is our firm conviction that our graduates will be lifelong learners committed to a "One Health" philosophy for humans, animals, and the environment, and will become leaders in their communities and the veterinary medical profession.

Students matriculating in the LMU-CVM program will receive a rigorous, demanding and rewarding veterinary medical education in a new, state-of-the-art facility, by faculty who are national leaders in the profession. All students participate in distributed clinical education and training through a network of community practice partners, public and corporate organizations, and federal and state agencies. Graduates of the LMU-CVM program benefit from a focused real-world community based clinical education and are career-ready on day one following graduation.

*Please note there is a possibility that the LMU-CVM could welcome an additional class annually.  If approved, this cohort will begin studies in the month of January.  This potential addition is pending approval from AVMA COE with a final decision expected in June.  Applicants for the 2021-2022 cycle will be notified of this expansion in a timely manner if approval is granted.  Please continue to monitor the website for updated information.
