Home to nationally ranked and recognized academic departments, residential colleges, and service-learning programs, MSU is a diverse community of dedicated students and scholars, athletes and artists, scientists, alumni, and leaders.

    MSU is a research-intensive university committed to intellectual leadership, excellence in fundamental and applied research, education, and service. Founded in 1855, MSU was one of the original beneficiaries of the Morrill Land Grant Colleges Act and continues to serve as a prototype for other institutions worldwide. MSU has since evolved into a world-class university with a comprehensive spectrum of programs that attract diverse and talented faculty, staff, and students. The long and distinguished tradition of public outreach at MSU complements its strength in research and teaching, and fosters positive intellectual, social, and technological development. MSU has been an elected member of the prestigious Association of American Universities since 1964 and is a member of the Big 10 Athletic Conference.

    Excellence in undergraduate and graduate student education is a priority and hallmark of MSU. Each year, MSU enrolls approximately 40,000 undergraduates and 11,000 graduate and professional students. These students come from at least 130 countries, all 50 states and every county in Michigan. MSU boasts approximately 542,000 living alumni. More than 12,000 faculty and staff are employed at MSU, and its 17 degree-granting colleges offer more than 200 different programs of study.

    The CVM is fortunate to have an outstanding faculty, all of whom hold the doctor of veterinary medicine degree and/or the doctor of philosophy degree. Nearly all of the specialty boards recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association are represented on the faculty. Many of these faculty members are leaders in their fields, both nationally and internationally.

    MSU has a long-standing commitment to equal opportunity, affirmative action, and multiculturalism. The CVM has attained national recognition for its leadership in programs for the encouragement of underrepresented groups at the preprofessional, professional, and advanced studies levels, as well as for increased diversity in its faculty, students, and staff.

    Special opportunities for pre-veterinary and professional students to participate in international veterinary activities further expand appreciation of different cultures. Indeed, international experience and opportunities abound in the college for both faculty and students. Nearly 300 individuals associated with the college have been involved in activities in 36 countries. A special endowment provides funds to support student travel abroad.

    The abundance and variety of animal agriculture and companion animals in Michigan provides the college with one of the largest clinical and diagnostic caseloads in the country. Educational and research opportunities are considerably enhanced by this large caseload.

    Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences (LCS)
    The Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences (LCS) is educating the next generation of veterinary professionals, conducting research that improves the lives of animals and humans, and providing the finest clinical services available.

    Our diverse faculty focuses on areas ranging from dairy, food animal, and specialized equine services to intensive research and student training. They work closely with students pursuing DVM degrees, veterinarians in internship and residency programs, and MS and PhD students. Learning to better understand, diagnose, and treat disease takes place in some of the most advanced facilities and laboratories. Faculty and students work together to find new solutions and put them into practice for a better world.

    LCS educational facilities include the Large Animal Clinic in the Veterinary Medical Center, where faculty members and students provide emergency care as well as diagnostics, medical and surgical treatment, and therapeutic services for horses, cattle and other ruminants, as well as other animals including camelids and pet pigs. It also coordinates the Summer Food Systems Fellowship Program - a unique partnership between the College and industry partners, which ensures the supply of well-trained veterinarians to work within the food animal industry. The McPhail Center houses a full sized arena with competition footing, forceplates, a farrier shop, an indoor lunging arena, and an overground endoscopy.

    Our faculty members are innovative researchers, dedicated teachers, and gifted practitioners. Their combined accomplishments have made us one of the top-ranked veterinary schools in the country. Every day, faculty members advance knowledge in a broad range of specialties and create new knowledge that is rapidly put into practice in a clinical setting. Our students learn from some of the brightest, most creative minds in veterinary medicine.

    We have three medicine and three surgery residents working closely with the faculty researchers and clinicians, and support staff help make sure everything runs smoothly in the lab and the clinic.

    Research in the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences is clustered around several cores of research excellence: preharvest food safety, inflammation and metabolic disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, and equine sports medicine and rehabilitation. The cores foster interdisciplinary collaboration, build on strengths of the college and university, and are conceptually broad to incorporate contributions from our diverse faculty.
