About CVM

Preparing the Next Generation of Veterinarians

LMU-CVM is committed to educating confident, competent, career-ready veterinarians. The 4-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) curriculum recognizes that medical knowledge must be developed in conjunction with clinical skills. With this practical approach in mind, hands-on experience with animals begins in the first semester and continues throughout the program. Pre-clinical sciences are presented via a modified approach in which anatomy (the relevant structure) and physiology (the function) are taught together in order to foster clinical reasoning and diagnostic comprehension.
