A program in pre-veterinary medicine can help prepare students who like to work with animals to go to veterinary school. Students pursuing a pre-vet course of study may also be able to work at an internship with a veterinarian in order to find out more about the profession.
A student of veterinary medicine can learn how to treat and care for sick and injured animals. They may focus on a specific group of animals (equine, small animal, etc.) or deal with wildlife instead of domestic animals.

Bachelor in Pre-Veterinary Medicine
Students who are interested in going to veterinary medical school typically major in biology, chemistry or biochemistry. As these majors include both the required courses for entrance into professional schools as well as additional coursework that will help prepare students for veterinary programs and for the entrance exam (the Graduate Record Examination or Medical College Admissions Test). However, other degrees can also prepare students for health professions; thus students are encouraged to major in the field where they excel and should consult a Pre-health Professions advisor about coursework.
