Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Center (TVMC)
Serving Every Texan Every Day
I thank AGN for the opportunity to explain what Texas A&M
University’s College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences, and West Texas A&M University, are doing to address
the Panhandle’s veterinary needs.
West Texas A&M University students interested in pursuing a
career as a veterinarian now benefit from the development of a
pipeline to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program through a
Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between WTAMU and the Texas A&M
University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical
Texas’ Rio Grande Valley is home to over 200,000 food-producing
animals. But it’s facing a critical veterinarian shortage. That
could put animals in the region at risk for disease, which could
turn into a problem for humans.

As the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine

Culminating a seven-year plan, The Texas A&M University
System today announced partnerships to expand veterinary education,
research and undergraduate outreach into several regions of the
