The School of Veterinary Medicine is responsible for the training of veterinary science graduates and the degree program has received international accreditation. A central part of the training is a development of core clinical competencies and as part of this process veterinary science students undertake training in our hospital, clinics and clinical services.
Equine medicine is a key discipline within the School of Veterinary Medicine. The discipline also contributes to research in equine medicine, training of equine medicine residents (currently ACVIM-LA) and supports a clinical service for The Animal Hospital and externally to the community of Western Australia.
