Welcome From The Dean

Dr. Eleanor M. Green, DVM Welcome to Aggieland! Let me be the first to extend a warm Aggie welcome to the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University. 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. I hope you will enjoy your internet visit and will choose to visit us in person in the future to learn more on a first hand basis about the Texas Veterinary Medical Center and the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
