SCHOOL DESCRIPTION

Located in St. Kitts, West Indies, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) offers an American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)- accredited* veterinary program focused on educating tomorrow’s leaders and discoverers in veterinary medi­cine. RUSVM is dedicated to providing academic ex­cellence for students as the foundation for becoming sought-after, practice-ready veterinarians for North America and beyond, and has over 3,000 graduates who are successfully practicing veteri­nary medicine across the US and Canada.

The seven-semester pre-clinical curriculum is en­hanced by hands-on clinical experience to help prepare students for the final year of clinical training at one of RUSVM’s affiliated vet­erinary schools in the United States. RUSVM’s faculty have outstanding credentials in teaching and research and share a passion for educating the veterinarians of tomorrow. RUSVM operates on a three-semester per year calendar.

Each semester is 15 full academic weeks, including final exams. RUSVM graduates are eligible to prac­tice veterinary medicine in all 50 States, Canada and Puerto Rico upon completion of the requisite licensing requirements. RUSVM students who are U.S. citizens/ permanent residents and meet the Department of Edu­cation’s qualifying criteria may be eligible for Federal Stafford Loans and Federal Graduate PLUS Loans.
