Center of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine

At the Center of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine we envision an inclusive veterinary profession that is prepared to meet the needs of our increasingly diverse society. We believe that establishing a veterinary workforce where all individuals are inspired, supported, and empowered to achieve their full potential, will lead to breakthroughs in animal and public health.

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. Center goals will focus on providing resources that increase intercultural competencies of veterinary professionals and lead to inclusive workplaces that are welcoming for both professionals and clients.
