A global leader in veterinary medicine education, research, and clinical care, the School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet) continues to advance not only veterinary medicine, but all science. Through an integrated program of teaching, healing, and discovery across two campuses and multiple disciplines, Penn Vet continually strives to improve the health and welfare of animals and humans. The diverse work accomplished at Penn Vet continues to advance the boundaries of what we understand about all species, linking human, animal, and environmental health.
School of Veterinary Medicine Giving Opportunities
Annual Giving: Critical to the expansion of Penn Vet's mission, unrestricted annual gifts give Penn Vet the flexibility to respond quickly to unforeseen needs and new opportunities, such as developing academic programs, supporting innovative studies, purchasing of new equipment and technologies, preparing the next generation of outstanding veterinarians, and caring for our patients.
Research: By taking an interdisciplinary approach and working collaboratively with other schools at Penn and beyond, Penn Vet is leading the way in understanding and treating diseases like blindness, cancer, and epilepsy that affect both our pets and fellow humans, as well as ensuring public safety by protecting our food supply from food-borne illnesses, breeding bomb detection and search-and-rescue dogs at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center, and serving as first responders for infectious disease surveillance and control.
Service: Serving a diverse population of animals, Penn Vet is on the cutting edge in clinical service as the first veterinary teaching institution to have both the Buerger Family Foundation Minimally Invasive Surgery Suite on the Philadelphia campus and the Moran Critical Care Center on our New Bolton Center campus―both representing the highest standards of care and biosecurity.
