Our Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program, located in our high-tech campus on the beautiful, verdant island of St. Kitts, is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education (AVMA-COE). Our students participate in a dynamic learning experience that emphasizes clinical communication skills, hands-on experiential learning, innovative instructional technology, and content that reflects current veterinary education topics and trends. The school is led by DVMs who combine expertise with real-world knowledge to create dynamic research and learning environment. Furthermore, with more under-represented in veterinary medicine DVM students than any AAVMC U.S. vet school, Ross Vet has committed to setting a vision and associated commitment to action for addressing racism and fighting for social justice.
