University of Florida’s Veterinary School Attracts Top Grads

by Diverse Staff

Every year, some 900 aspiring veterinarians and animal researchers apply for 88 first-year slots at the University of Florida’s veterinary school. 

According to the Miami Herald, because this is one of just a few U.S. veterinary schools with a college of human medicine practically next door, students are part of groundbreaking research that has significant implications for animals and people.

Already, the college’s researchers have developed a vaccine for the virus that causes AIDS in cats. With construction now under way on a $58 million small animal hospital, the college hopes to expand its potential for innovative research and treatment.
