Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program

The Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program at Colorado State University is the 3rd highest ranked veterinary school in the country according to US News and World Report (2011). This 4-year lecture and clinical training program graduates approximately 138 new veterinarians annually. During the first two years, students learn through didactic laboratory and lecture session. In the third and fourth years, students rotate through the clinical services in the hospital, including the oncology service.

Oncology is one of many clinical veterinary specialties at the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The oncology service is world renowned and because of this, is one of the busiest specialties currently serving, referring veterinarians, clients and their pets. “Cancer Can’t Wait” is the service motto. All clients or their referring veterinarians can call the oncology receptionist directly at (970) 221-4535 to schedule an appointment. Appointments are available soon, often within the week or the next day.

Professional veterinary students play an integral role within the service. Each student has the opportunity to utilize their clinical skills and competencies under the guidance of a medical oncology resident, surgical oncologist, or medical oncologist in this clinical rotation. Students are given the role to assist in evaluating, diagnosing, and managing relatively complex cases while integrating skills and knowledge in all aspects of internal medicine, surgery, radiation therapy, and pain management.
