About Us

About Our Faculty

The Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences has a strong international reputation for excellence in research and for its links with industry and stakeholders. Our research provides valuable input into solving global issues, such as food security for a rapidly growing population, animal health and well-being, and climate change.

Students of the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine develop a rich clinical experience at the University of Melbourne Veterinary Hospital, including a final year of lecture free clinical training. Many staff members are experts in their field, including several Board-certified experts with extensive and significant international experience. The teaching facilities at the Veterinary Hospital are world class, including the most complete suite of diagnostic imaging equipment in the Asia-Pacific.

Diversity and inclusion in the Faculty

We are committed to providing a collaborative, diverse and inclusive environment with shared values and behaviours that attracts and supports talented staff and students and delivers an outstanding student experience.
