The School of Veterinary Medicine was established in 1999, combining a high quality, broad based academic program with community outreach service and clinical research exposure. Since its inception, a vast array of research projects have been completed and presented internationally by members of the University’s over 100-full time faculty and international student body.  The research focus areas are: Public Health (Epidemiology, Zoonotic and Infectious Diseases, Food Safety, Water Quality and Ecosystem Health), Marine Medicine (Aquarium Fish, Food Fish, Marine Turtles and Coral Toxicology), and Teaching Methodologies.
