DVM Curriculum

Pre-veterinary Medicine Curriculum

Effective 1st semester 2002-2003, the DVM curriculum was revised to incorporate the requirements of the Revitalized General Education Program (RGEP) of the University. The RGEP was designed to offer wider choices of general education (GE) courses, thus broadening the students’ intellectual and cultural perspective.

As a result, the previous 36 units of prescribed GE courses were replaced by 42 units of non-prescribed GE courses. However 31-33 units GE courses were prescribed as foundation courses for the CVM proper curriculum.

In order to complete the 42 units, the students will have to choose their preferred GE courses under three domains as follows: Arts and Humanities (AH), 15 units; Social Sciences and Philosophy (SSP), 15 units; and Mathematics, Science and Technology (MST), 12 units.

A summary of the pre-veterinary curriculum is presented below
