The faculty and staff of the college are committed to exceptional teaching, research and patient care. Many changes will be shaping the future of veterinary medical education and veterinary medicine in the future, and Texas A&M's College of Veterinary Medicine is determined to help lead the way as the profession prepares for the next millennium. The Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is an institution that represents more than 87 years of growth from a small school of veterinary medicine in 1916 to its present role as a major veterinary educational, medical and research center. Through years of maturation and expansion, an institution emerged that has proudly produced approximately 10 percent of the nation's practicing veterinarians and continues to lead the nation in innovative approaches to veterinary medical education. From the nearly 500 students in our DVM program to the 2250 students in our dynamic Biomedical Science Program to the 150 outstanding graduate students involved in quality research projects throughout the college, we are engaged in preparing our students to meet the public and animal health needs of the 21st century and beyond. Our college was established in 1916 and since that time, we have graduated over 6000 veterinarians. We are one of only 31 Colleges of Veterinary Medicine in the United States and Canada. Texas Aggie veterinarians proudly serve our state, our nation and indeed the world in countless ways. From highly sophisticated veterinary practices serving the 19 million residents of Texas and their animals to military, industrial, government and university roles, Aggie veterinarians hold positions of prestige and responsibility. The faculty and staff of the college are committed to exceptional teaching, research and patient care. Our research addresses significant problems in both animal and human health, which impacts both Texas and the entire nation. Our Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital provides patient care services to thousands of animals owned by Texans every year. We are proud of our college, our facilities and our programs, but it is the people that make it all work--we are enormously proud of our faculty, staff and students.
