Educational outreach beyond Ithaca is an essential part of Cornell University's land grant mission. As an affiliate of the nation's leading veterinary college, CUVS is committed to enhancing the practice of veterinary medicine both within its walls and beyond. Our specialists, as well as visiting faculty from Cornell University, will lead continuing education lectures and rounds for local veterinarians. CUVS will also offer regular educational workshops for local pet owners on topics such as first aid. Fourth-year veterinary students from the Ithaca campus will visit our hospital for two-week observational externships, and joint specialty residency programs will eventually be established with the Ithaca campus. We are proud to partner with Cornell University toward the advancement of the veterinary profession.
