As the only Veterinary School on the island of Ireland we are proud to hold accreditation from the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) following a successful reaccreditation site visit in January 2014.

During the most recent AVMA COE site visit the UCD School of Veterinary Medicine was commended for:

  • Clinical facilities kept in very good order and promoting the learning experience of the students
  • The development of a state-of-the-art dairy facility at Lyons Research Farm
  • Faculty availability and engagement with student support issues, and the peer mentoring program
  • The care and attention provided by faculty for the learning and personal wellbeing of students

Statistics highlighting the success of UCD students in the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) can be viewed on the School Accreditation page.
