Exploring Veterinary Medicine and One Health|Freshman Interest Groups

Exploring Veterinary Medicine and One Health

Majors of Interest:

All students interested in learning about veterinary medicine and exploring diverse and exciting career options available in veterinary medicine and animal health professions.

FIG Description:


Exploring Veterinary Medicine and One Health offers students an introduction to the discipline of veterinary medicine and the philosophy of One Health (the philosophy that the health of humans, animals, and the environment are linked and inseparable) and gives them a head start in satisfying the basic science prerequisites necessary to prepare for veterinary school, other professional schools, and graduate programs through enrollment in freshman biology and chemistry during their first semester of college.  As a member of this FIG you will learn about the diverse career paths open to people interested in the health of animals (and by default, the health of humans and the environment) through reading and writing exercises, discussions, interactive projects, presentations by professionals, and engaging laboratory experiences.  You also will learn how to begin to critically analyze the scientific and public literature in veterinary medicine and one health, learn to use available resources at the University of Wyoming that foster academic success, and begin to meet professionals working in veterinary medicine and One Health at the university and beyond.   

Special Note: This FIG requires a minimum math placement exam score of 3 or a minimum ACT math subscore of 23.
