Ross University

Ross University's School of Veterinary Medicine is more than a quarter-century old. Throughout our history, we have focused on excellence in veterinary education while expanding our St. Kitts campus and our network of American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) accredited schools affiliated with Ross University where students complete their clinical education. More than 2,500 students have realized their calling through Ross University. Much has changed over that time, but not our commitment to meeting the highest standards of the veterinary profession.
