Thank you for choosing the oldest and most distinguished veterinary medical school in Iran, founded in 1933. Faculty of Veterinary Medicine has had 3500 undergraduate alumni (DVM) and over 600 postgraduate alumni( DVSc or PhD) up to 2015. It also has near 100 faculty members, almost 70 percent of which are associate professors and professors.

Over a 6-year period, DVM students would be taught basic and clinical courses in different educational centers associated with Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, including the main building of faculty, Veterinary Research Institute (with 100 hectares area and  consisting of dairy farm, sheep flock, fish rising pools and chicken farms), Large Animal Research and Teaching Hospital (with 44 hectares area including 15000 m2 building area consisting of laboratories, classes, etc) and Small Animal Hospital(with 2000 m2).

Students awarded DVM degree could proceed courses in DVSc or PhD programs in about 20 different fields. Notably, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine accepts almost 70 undergraduate and 50 postgraduate students each year. Nevertheless , students interested in basic medical sciences can apply for centers associated with medical sciences.

Therefore, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Tehran has a significant role in education of veterinarians participating in health programs in the country. We desire to be able to maintain the excellence of Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and to improve the level of veterinary education.
