About this program

Veterinary Medicine (Pre)

Admission to veterinary school is very competitive. There are only 30 schools in the country accredited to award a doctor of veterinary medicine (D.V.M) degree. By studying at North Central College, you can experience opportunities that give you the edge you need to gain admission to veterinary school.

At North Central, you’ll study biology, chemistry and other subjects. In your degree program you’ll be pushed to master writing and communication skills that will help prepare you to relate to animal owners. You’ll get to know the professors who teach in North Central’s smaller classes, and when you need a letter of recommendation your teachers will know just what to say about you. By earning a bachelor's degree in one of our majors, such as biology or biochemistry, and completing specific prerequisite coursework, you will develop a solid foundation for applying to veterinary school.

North Central College is ideally located in Chicago’s western suburbs, where veterinary students find plenty of opportunities to job shadow veterinary professionals or volunteer at animal care facilities like the Naperville Area Humane Society.

You can also:

  • Conduct research on your own, with peers or a faculty member during North Central’s Summer Undergraduate Research Colloquium, and present your findings at the Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research or the National Conference on Undergraduate Research.
  • Pursue research interests anywhere in the world by applying for a Richter Independent Study Fellowship grant.
  • Work with North Central's dedicated pre-health advisor.
  • Network with alumni and peers through North Central’s student-run Pre-Health Organization.
