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 this greater social mission of contribution to society, the College of Veterinary Medicine at Seoul National University aims to nurture talented veterinarians, promote creative research, and provide first-rate animal care services. We continue our path of success as one of the world's leading veterinary education institutions; the College of Veterinary Medicine at SNU has not only been acknowledged with Korean veterinary education certification in Korea, but is also preparing to be the first university in Asia to be accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). In recent years, we have established several facilities for research and medical aid: the Biotechnology Research building, the Veterinary Bio-Resources Research building, a new Veterinary Hospital, the Farm Animal Clinical Training and Research Center in Pyeongchang, and the Seoul Wildlife Research Center. In addition to these efforts, we are preparing 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.
