Lakehead seeks approval to offer Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program in partnership with UoGuelph

January 26, 2022
Lakehead University is seeking approval from the Government of Ontario to begin offering a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program. The program would be offered in partnership with the University of Guelph, and students would complete their first two years in Thunder Bay before moving to Guelph to complete the last two years. “Veterinary capacity is desperately needed in northern and rural communities, and this partnership would provide an opportunity for us to further attract and retain local talent in the north, for the north,” said Lakehead President Moira McPherson. Lakehead is aiming to launch the program in Fall 2024, and will place a priority on recruiting local and Indigenous students. TB News Watch (ON)
