Together, we will prepare the next generation of veterinary leaders
The interplay of the health of animals, people and the environment is now recognized as a key component in the protection of overall health.
We are a relatively new and already successful faculty. For more than 10 years, the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (UCVM) has worked to support a shortage of veterinarians serving rural Alberta. Our research, graduate education and clinical training programs advance animal and human health — where innovation meets community.
As an internationally recognized provider of high-quality veterinary education, we are an acknowledged leader in comparative biomedical, veterinary and population health research.
Conducting research that addresses issues of importance to our animal industries at the interface of animal and human health, we are creating a new generation of veterinarians.
Support the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine
Through your annual giving to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, you can spark meaningful change in the areas that matter to you. Whether you give to one of the school’s identified priorities or to a fund that is personally meaningful, your gift will provide UCVM students with transformative experiences they will carry with them for life.
- Innovative spaces for teaching and learning: The Bovine Teaching Centre will provide state-of-the-art teaching infrastructure that allows UCVM’s outstanding teachers and staff to educate the next generation of veterinarians and cattle producers in the art and practice of various aspects of cattle health.
- Improving animal and human health: The Equine Health Innovation Fund will be used to establish an endowment to support equine education, clinical activities and research within the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. By November 30, 2021 if the received total amount from all donors has not reached $25,000, which is the minimum amount required to set up an endowment, the University will redesignate the gift to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Equine Health Fund.
The Equine Health Fund supports equine education, clinical activities, and research efforts within the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
The Bovine Health Fund supports bovine education, clinical activities, and research efforts within the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
The Companion Animal Health Fund supports companion animal education, clinical activities, and research efforts within the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
- Student and program support: The UCVM Excellence Fund enables UCVM to support student and faculty activities, increase the quality of academic programs, provide a valuable student experience, invest in new strategic programs and projects, and attract first-class faculty and students
