Pre-Veterinary Medicine

The Nebraska Pre-Veterinary Medicine program (PVET) is designed for students who want to become veterinarians. The doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM) degree, or its equivalent, must be earned to become a veterinarian. Students wishing to earn the DVM degree must complete the required coursework for the pre-veterinary medicine program of their choosing.

The Nebraska PVET program can help students qualify for admission to any of the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education (AVMA-COE) accredited veterinary schools which offer the DVM degree or its equivalent. Students completing our PVET program do not earn baccalaureate degrees nor are they guaranteed admission to any veterinary school.
