Among the Best

When the 2015 national graduate school rankings were released by U.S. News and World Report magazine, Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine made a significant jump in the ratings.

The college moved four spots to 13th overall and 10th among public schools, an increase of four spots over the previous rankings conducted in 2011 among schools accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association.

“The reputation of Iowa State’s College of Veterinary Medicine among our peers continues to improve,” said Dr. Pat Halbur, the Interim Dr. Stephen G. Juelsgaard Dean of Veterinary Medicine. “I attribute our ‘jump in the polls’ to the strides we have made in recent years with excellent hires to our faculty, the tremendous addition of the Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center to our physical plant, the quality of our academic offerings, and the research and teaching performed each and every day by our superb faculty.”

The College of Veterinary Medicine is by the Council on Education and offers both a professional veterinary degree program and graduate programs, both master’s and Ph.D., in a variety of academic disciplines.
