As one of the top veterinary schools in the country, the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine is committed to being a leader in professional education, clinical service and research. The college also has an essential role to play in improving the quality of life for the citizens of North Carolina, the nation and the world. The college's mission is to advance the veterinary profession and animal and human health through ongoing discovery and medical innovation; provide animals and their owners with extraordinary, compassionate medical care; and prepare the next generation of veterinarians and biomedical research scientists. The college is fully accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education.

The college anchors the 250-acre Centennial Biomedical Campus, an extension of NC State's Centennial Campus. Instruction is provided through three academic departments: Clinical Sciences, Molecular Biomedical Sciences, and Population Health and Pathobiology. There are approximately 400 students enrolled in the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine professional program and over 90 students enrolled in the multidisciplinary Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program. The college and teaching hospital are supported by more than 150 faculty and 450 staff members, and over 100 house officers (interns and residents). A unique feature of the campus is the 80-acre Teaching Animal Unit, a dynamic teaching lab for students to learn husbandry, production management and livestock production procedures.

Diversity and inclusion are critical to the success of the college, which promotes a values-driven culture of mutual respect that supports all of its community members, prioritizes relationships and collaborations, and promotes innovation and the pursuit of one's passions. DVM students develop key competencies necessary for success in private practice, industry, government and academia. The curriculum includes instruction and practice in teamwork, client interactions, and public communication as well as the development of interpersonal and organizational skills. The NC State Veterinary Hospital sees an average of 35,000 cases annually. Clinical faculty include internationally recognized certified specialists in over 30 disciplines, supported by highly trained veterinary technicians and staff. Small animal services are available across 17 specialty departments and equine services are available across six departments.
