Swine Program

DVM Students

The University of Minnesota provides a world-class education in swine health & production to its veterinary students. From the overview of global pork production to applied disease control strategies, the information is scaffolded throughout the program four years so that even without prior experience, a student can become a competitive swine veterinarian after graduation.

Swine Certificate

This program is offered to DVM students at the University of Minnesota, and students at other accredited colleges of veterinary medicine in the US. It consists of a minimum of 10 semester credits, two 12-week internships, and a formal seminar presentation.
