Philippine School with the Best Veterinary Degree Program

Ice BurnIce Burn PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
What's the school here with the best veterinary degree program?

I've been contemplating on going back to school to pursue a veterinary degree. Been thinking about it since the Avian flu outbreak. There's a currently a big demand right now for people with dual degrees in VetMed & Public Policy for Multilateral Agencies like UN, World Bank & WHO etc, especially now w/ the swine flu outbreak. Since I already have a masters in Public Policy, I'm really thinking about it.

I know vetmed takes 5 years if one is fresh out of highschool but how long will it take to finish for one with already a bachelors and a master's degree?

  • I've been hearing a lot of good things about the College of Veterinary Medicine and Agricultural Sciences of DLSAU (formerly Gregorio Araneta University Foundation).

    Dr. Hiroshi Saito, a prominent researcher and expert in animal reproduction, artificial insemination, and tropical animal science, obtained his Master's Degrees in Tropical Animal Science and Animal Breeding at DLSAU.

    He has been travelling around the world conducting research projects through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

  • UP Los Banos
  • UPLB has the best veterinary med program in the country.
    Their Institute for ANimal Science is a center of excellence.

    DLSAU seems to be a good prospective school. I'll give them a call come Monday to inquire. :)

    Are there any other Manila based schools offering vetmed aside from DLSAU? UPLB is too far.

    Aside from DLSAU, I believe no other vet schools are located in MM; veterinary medicine is usually offered by provincial state universities.

    UPLB, no doubt about it. The best in our country.
    DLSAU, a very promising school.
  • If ok sa mga gustong mag-aral sa provincial setup, UPLB ang the best choice. 3-4hrs ang byahe, depende sa traffic. It is also the best in the country.

    DLSAU is good also, esp. kung within metro manila ang target ng students.

    the passing rate of GAUF has always been DISMAL. always below 50 percent. if u really want to be a Vet, try UPLB. No other choice!!!

    I think there is a choice, especially since she wants to stay in Metro Manila. She can figure out what those GAUF passers have done and do as they have done, or even better. There are many paths to success.

    DLSAU if here in Metro Manila - their the only school that offers Veterinary Medicine in the Metro.

    UPLB, I guess if you can go to Laguna and study.
  • i think uplb, iyon lang alam kong may vet med.[ang one-sided]
  • UPLB is the Best..... no doubt!

    ===> other recommended school is CLSU, my friend studied there and now she is very successful Veterinarian abroad

    Central Luzon State University - College of Veterinary Science & Medicine

    There really isn't much choices then noh? :lol:

    My purpose really isn't to do clinic later on (though I might) but more on policy work.
  • UPLB..supah true!

    No offense to the UP people here but it would be nice to receive more feedback and program discussions other than simply saying your school is the best.

    Or better yet I am hoping for feedback from people who actually studied vetmed and can post about the pros and cons of their respective programs.

    I'm not particular about the name of the school but rather the quality of the program and whether the school offers specializations since I'm really more on looking on specializing on animal diseases on a pandemic level.

    if you're worried about humans and not animals, vet med is a little bit off for you :lol: may i suggest public health, preferably at the masteral level. PH is for med people who really dig research. health research can be very lucrative as there will always be grants from both local and foreign agencies. but there are two disadvantages to taking public health:

    1. it's a tough course with a heavy chemistry load (you can imagine the deterministic nature of the work.)

    2. if you want funding agencies to notice you, it's always an advantage to have a medical degree. BSPH or MPH might not cut it.

    i'm not a PH guy but i know what i'm saying, especially #2.

    My masters in Public Policy already specialized in Public Health. :)

    Funding agencies do have a lot of public health specialists but very few vets hence the demand. :)
