  • Providing Excellence Through Innovation: Cutting-edge Veterinary Education

    Our spirit of innovation drives us to find new ways to embody our mission and provide excellence in teaching, research, and service.

    In August of 2009, our College introduced the Illinois Integrated Veterinary Professional Curriculum (IIVP)–a groundbreaking approach to veterinary education which increases clinical experience, improves integration, and institutes professional development senior electives to transition students into veterinary practice. A distinctive feature of the IIVPC is the Clinical Skills Learning Center –a learning laboratory that links basic science education with clinical training.  At the CSLC, students can learn to use an ECG and listen to simulated heart sounds prior to their first-year cardiovascular physiology coursework. Visit the CSLC Web site to see examples of these innovative teaching models in action.
