The mission of the CSU College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is to improve the health of animals, people, and the planet through innovative and dedicated teaching, research, outreach, ​and clinical service. Through our actions, we empower the next generation of leaders to change the world.

Founded in 1907, and home to the highly ranked Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program, the college also educates undergraduates in biomedical sciences, environmental health and radiological sciences, microbiology, immunology and pathology, and neuroscience.

One of Colorado State’s most productive research units, the college’s research expenditure in 2017 was $44 million, driving discoveries in human and animal health.

The James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital treats more than 40,000 patients a year, and is home to the Flint Animal Cancer Center, and 79 faculty veterinarians representing 28 board-certified specialties. Veterinary students spend the third and fourth years of their doctoral program on clinical rotations in the hospital.

The C. Wayne McIlwraith Translational Medicine Institute draws upon established areas of CSU research expertise in orthopaedics, biomedical engineering, immunology, infectious disease, surgical advances, and other medical fields. The institute brings together educators and innovators from academia, industry, public agencies, and other entities to pursue development of promising medical technologies. Its state-of-the-art equipment, research space, clinical resources, and conference areas are designed to support this collaboration among animal and human medical specialists.​

I invite you to explore all that the College has to offer.
