Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Accreditation


The Faculty holds and maintains continuous accreditation through the transition to a new veterinary program. Graduates of accredited programs are immediately eligible for registration with the Veterinary Practitioners Board in each state and territory in Australia. The course is also recognised internationally by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (UK) and is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). Students graduating from an AVMA accredited School have their degree recognised in North America and are entitled to sit the US National Veterinary Licensing Examinations.

What does this mean for students and graduates?

In order to maintain international accreditation, we must constantly monitor, critically evaluate and improve the quality of the DVM curriculum, both in learning and assessment methods and graduate outcomes. This means our program meets the highest international standards and is constantly being reviewed and improved. Graduates of the University of Sydney veterinary program can go on to work internationally with confidence that they have completed a rigorous and internationally scrutinised course.
