What is an associate degree in veterinary medicine? An associate degree in veterinary medicine provides students with a solid science foundation needed in this field such as chemistry, biochemistry, animal biology, anatomy and pharmacology. Individuals enrolled in the program also gain practical hands-on experience by working in a laboratory and, in some cases, participating in an internship with a veterinary clinic. In addition, students can expect to learn about client communication, anesthetic procedures, animal assessments and diagnostic equipment. 

Students who earn an associate degree in veterinary medicine have a competitive advantage. For example, graduates of these programs have a better chance for employment than job seekers who do not have a higher education degree. 

The cost for obtaining this degree varies among countries and institutions. Before making a final decision, contact schools and ask about tuition, fees and other related expenses.

Individuals who complete the program have access to more job prospects and better pay. There are a lot of career options available for graduates entering this field. A few of the more common career paths include veterinary technician, animal care worker, animal trainer, animal breeder, animal control worker and veterinary assistant. With a growing demand for well-trained professionals, not only is the employment outlook positive, but also there is room for advancement. By furthering your higher education and pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degree, you can go on to become a veterinarian. From there, there are additional opportunities at your disposal, such as starting a private practice, working for the government as well as becoming a researcher or teacher.
