Pre-Vet Heart Dissection Lab
The Path to Veterinary Success

If your future includes working with animals in a health-related capacity, Pre-Vet: The Path to Veterinary Success is a great way to start your undergraduate experience!

You will live in the new East Campus Residence Hall with other students who share your interests, and take introductory science courses necessary for veterinary medicine and similar careers.

You'll also have the opportunity to learn more about your chosen field through experiences such as shadowing a zoological veterinarian at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo, touring emergency vet clinics and humane societies, and networking with faculty.
