Dean's Message

Our Veterinary College is located in the South Gate entrance of Chungbuk National University, and our excellent veterinary education campus has four main facilities including two educational buildings, Veterinary Teaching hospital, and Laboratory Animal Research Center.

There are 2-year pre-veterinary and 4-year veterinary curriculums in the College of Veterinary Medicine. Our pre-veterinary curriculum provides students with basic discipline that are the foundation of veterinary medicine, and the veterinary curriculum provides students a variety of disciplines that include various animal diseases, zoonotic infectious diseases, food hygiene and environmental hygiene, and biotechnology to improve and promote the health and well-being of animals and humans.

The College of Veterinary Medicine was founded in 1989 as the Department of Veterinary Medicine and was promoted to the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993, which reflects the growth and expansion of our programs. We now have four excellent educational facilities for the veterinary training including Veterinary Teaching hospital which is equipped with the state-of-the-art equipment such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT). It offers not only the students greater clinical training opportunities but the public the highest quality hospital and diagnostic laboratory services.

Our research program is nationally competitive, highly focused, and productive as we have participated in numerous nationally-funded programs including BK21plus, Priority Research Centers Program, School-Based Enterprise of Veterinary Medical Center, University for Creative Korea (CK), and Leaders in Industry-University Cooperation (LINC). Thus, the College of Veterinary Medicine has been a leader in teaching and research and has played an important role in the University's educational mission. As a result, we have recently been rated as the Best Department for 3 times and the Best College for 5 times in the Chungbuk National University and were able to achieve a 100% pass rate in national veterinary examination in 2015.

As one of the best veterinary colleges in Korea, we aim to foster and educate professional veterinarians who meet global standards and will continue to endeavor to open a new cutting-edge clinical facility and to improve our educational and research programs.

I hope you will enjoy your internet visit and will choose to visit us in person in the future to learn more about us.
