A World Class Faculty Will Help Prepare the
Next Generation of Veterinarians and Researchers

For the Challenges of a Changing World

Veterinary medicine has changed radically in the last half century. Then, economically important food animals were the basis of any practice. Medicine was often delivered in the pasture. Today, companion animals make office visits and suffer from many of the same age-related diseases of people---and are treated with the same techniques of human medicine.

It is difficult to predict what veterinary medicine will look like in 2050, a time that most of 2007's graduates will live to see.

Preparing today's students for future challenges is one mission of the faculty at the MU College of Veterinary Medicine. Students not only need to learn the latest techniques, but acquire an ability to learn and adapt as the profession changes and grows. Consequently, the college is looking for $4 million to create endowed professorships, chairs, and fellowships to attract the very best veterinary medical educators.
