Department Population Health and Pathobiology
About the Department
The mission of the Department of Population Health and Pathobiology is to
recruit, train, inspire and graduate Doctors of Veterinary Medicine with
exemplary knowledge, skill, and character. To maintain the intellectual and
professional climate necessary to accomplish this mission, the department's
faculty will advance veterinary medical through inspired teaching and
mentoring of students (undergraduate, professional, residents, and
graduate), excellence in clinical and diagnostic services, innovative basic
and applied research, and innovative extension and engagement activities.
North Carolina State University's College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is a
dynamic community whose members are dedicated to preparing veterinarians and
veterinarian scientists while advancing animal and human health from the
cellular level through entire ecosystems.
With the graduation of its first class in 1985, the CVM remains one of the
younger veterinary programs in the country. Despite its relative youth, the
College has gained international recognition for the strength of its teaching,
research, engagement, and patient care efforts and is ranked among the top 5
of the nation's 33 colleges of veterinary medicine in the yearly U.S. News &
World Report survey.
Located on 180 acres near downtown Raleigh, the College encompasses 20
buildings on the main Centennial Biomedical Campus. Instruction is in three
departments—Clinical Sciences, Molecular Biomedical Sciences, and Population
Health and Pathobiology. In addition to the four-year Doctor of Veterinary
Medicine degree, there are programs leading to master's and doctoral degrees
in several areas with numerous opportunities for specialization.
The college is committed to practicing inclusivity, making the community a
priority, and promoting innovation. We embrace effective leadership and we
champion personal and professional growth.
