Pre-Veterinary Medicine

The pre-veterinary medicine curriculum at Eastern Oregon University is designed to meet the requirements for admission to schools of veterinary medicine as well as to place you in a position to complete a Baccalaureate degree within four years.

Oregon residents normally apply to the School of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University after three or four years of study at Eastern. Students must complete a minimum of 120 quarter hours of coursework which includes one-year sequences in general chemistry with lab, general biology with lab, organic chemistry with lab, general physics with lab, in addition to courses which include biochemistry, genetics, mathematics, animal nutrition, and additional courses in biological sciences. Students are strongly encouraged to work closely with their pre-veterinary adviser when choosing appropriate coursework.

Admission to the veterinary school is very competitive
