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.
UCD School of Veterinary Medicine welcomed a Six Nations Champion last week.

Thesis in 3 is an exciting national competition for research students from all over Ireland who have just 3 slides and 3 minutes to explain an entire thesis. The competition is designed to showcase the world-class research happening in Ireland in bite-sized chunks.
This year, the Veterinary Education Symposium took place in the historic surrounds of Robinson College, Cambridge. The UCD Veterinary School and Hospital were represented at the pre-conference workshop as well as the main Conference proceedings.
