Center of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine

What is Human-Centered Veterinary Medicine?

Human-Centered Veterinary Medicine recognizes that a veterinarian's relationship with an animal's caretaker is a crucial factor in optimizing that animal's health and wellbeing. Our intention is to provide resources that lead to inclusive work and learning places that are welcoming and supportive for professionals, students, and clients.

Get Started with our Online Certificate Programs

Purdue University, through the Center of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine, presents online professional certificate programs designed for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, educators, students, and staff who seek to improve their communication, leadership, teaching/learning, and cultural competency skills.
