The Pre-Professional Program for Pre-Veterinary preparation at Emmanuel College is designed to fulfill the admissions requirements for entrance to many Doctor of Veterinary Medicine professional programs. The program provides a challenging and rigorous course of study designed to prepare students to think critically, learn and retain large amounts of information, and apply that knowledge to situations at hand to solve problems. Most doctor of veterinary medicine programs require the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) test as part of the application, for which students will need to study and prepare to afford the best chance of entrance into the program of their choice. The requirements for these programs vary among those schools that offer doctor of veterinary medicine graduate training; therefore, the student will need to review the entrance requirements for programs of interest to ensure that all prerequisites for that program are met prior to making application.
