Veterinary Medicine offers excellent opportunities covering a variety of practical and academic fields. At Cambridge the courses are particularly suited to people with an interest in the scientific foundations of the subject, both because the supervision system allows you to follow up areas of interest, and because you have the opportunity, in your third year, to specialise in a single chosen subject. Veterinary students commonly find themselves working alongside Natural Scientists and Medicine Student both in supervisions as well as during laboratory classes and lectures. Veterinary students stay in Cambridge for the three-year clinical course that is based at the School of Veterinary Medicine on Madingley Road, closer to Churchill than to any other College.
Churchill College takes up to 3 Veterinary students each year, which enables us to get to know each other and focus on the development of our students as individuals. With a clinical and non-clinical Directors of Studies, Dr Barry Kingston and Dr Mark Holmes, the quality of supervision and care provided for medical students at Churchill is second to none. By fostering a collaborative and mutually supportive ethos, we are focused on the development of our students as individuals. As a College with a mission in science, unsurprisingly the College Library is well stocked for Veterinary Medicine. The Veterinary students are also part of the Churchill Medical Society that arranges regular social functions and occasionally hosts visiting speakers to give after-dinner talks.
