MU’s Veterinary Health Center (VHC) is a state-of-the-art teaching and medical services facility for companion animals as well as livestock. Columbia, MO, is an ideal location for such a teaching hospital. The population of central Missouri and reasonable proximity to St. Louis and Kansas City provide for a robust small animal emergency and referral caseload.
MU is a nationally competitive, global institution and Missouri’s largest public research university. Many states fund separate research and land-grant universities, but Missouri combines those roles at its flagship institution with both land-grant and statewide missions in service to the citizens of the State. MU, also referred to as “Mizzou”, is one of only five universities nationwide that offers law, medicine, veterinary medicine, and a nuclear research reactor on one campus.
MU is a national leader in comparative medicine, in which researchers collaborate by sharing discoveries, innovations and treatments for humans and animals. For more about the College of Veterinary Medicine and our impact on Missouri, the nation, and the world, go to:
