The Virginia–Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine (also known as the Virginia–Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine) is a state-supported college of two states, Virginia and Maryland, filling the need for veterinary medicine education in both states. Students from both states are considered “in-state” students for admissions purposes.
It is one of 28 colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States and is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Council on Education and the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International. In 2011, the U.S. News ‘Veterinary Medicine’ Ranking placed the college tied for 17th with Iowa State University in a poll of 25 ranked schools.
The college is considered a constituent college of both Virginia Tech and the University of Maryland. The college’s main campus is located on Virginia Tech’s campus in Blacksburg, with a branch on the University of Maryland’s campus in College Park. It also operates the Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center in Leesburg, Virginia. The college’s Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program is designed to be finished in four years.
