Due to deficiencies in its aging physical facilities, the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine has been assigned limited accreditation status for two years by the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education, the accrediting body for all veterinary educational institutions in the United States.


While progress is made in remedying the facilities problems, students will continue to graduate from a nationally accredited school and qualify for national certification and state licensing examinations.


“We are addressing the issues raised by the council, with the intention of fully complying with its expectations,” said Bennie I. Osburn, dean of the School of Veterinary Medicine. “The quality of our faculty, students, and educational program remains the highest in the nation, earning U.S. News & World Report’s top ranking this past year. With the help of the university, the state, and the animal-owning public, we hope to be well on our way to bringing our aging facilities in line with our outstanding program when our progress is reviewed two years from now.”


Limited accreditation is a probationary period during which a school is expected to bring one or more areas into compliance with accreditation standards. At the end of the two years the school may regain full accreditation if the necessary criteria are met
