The College of Veterinary Medicine is socially-minded and responsive to the environmental requisites for ensuring a healthy and happy life. We strive to provide the highest quality of medical aid to animals while simultaneously create a vibrant and ecologically diverse environment for the sustainability of our society. Although companion animals, farm animals, laboratory animals, wild animals, and leisure animals exist in different systems within our society, we aim to conduct animal health and welfare research toward a future that will be viewed as truly harmonious. Furthermore, the college continues to work closely with the government to coordinate the inter-Korean Veterinarian Cooperation in preparation for a unified country.
With our clear mission for contributions back to the society, the College will strive to foster the future professionals while engaging in creative researches, and providing compassionate veterinary services with distinction. We are confident in building our school as one of the world’s leading veterinary institutions. The College has just been on the list of American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) accreditation. This makes us the 1st veterinary institution in Asia to be part of AVMA accredited schools of the world. In addition, in recent years, we have established additional facilities for research and medical expertise: the Biotechnology Research building, the Veterinary Bio-Resources Research building, a brand new Veterinary Teaching Hospital, the Farm Animal Clinical Training and Research Center in Pyeongchang, and the Seoul Wildlife Research Center. In addition to these diverse efforts, we are preparing for an innovative educational environment and training system that would cultivate socially conscientious experts ready to meet the fourth industrial revolution in student education.
The students, staff, and faculty of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Seoul National University will work together to create an excellent, elegant, and world-renowned college through collaboration, combined effort, and a shared vision under our administration.
