The University of Guelph, located in Ontario, Canada, is home of the world renowned Ontario Veterinary College (OVC). The university is a research-intensive and student-oriented facility. Its written mission is to serve society and to enhance the quality of life through education with a global perspective. The university offers a wide range of programs, both theoretical and applied, disciplinary and interdisciplinary, undergraduate and graduate, in the arts, humanities, social sciences, as well as professional fields. Among these programs, it recognizes agriculture and veterinary medicine as areas of special responsibility.


Wayne McDonnell, DVM, PhD, of research and graduate affairs, said the Ontario Veterinary College attracts the highest-quality students, faculty, and staff because of the research conducted at the institution and the reputation of the OVC. The University offers the degree program Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), with classes being offered in the fall and spring semesters. According to McDonnell, the summer months are dedicated to research.


Objectives of the veterinary program, according to university literature, are to “Teach students the ability to solve animal health problems and provide them the understanding of management of domestic animals. Graduates also must be able to communicate effectively in writing and speaking.”


The university’s veterinary program is accredited by the Canadian and American Veterinary Medical Associations and by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons of Britain. A DVM degree from Guelph is respected by veterinarians throughout the world
