Regular visits by outstanding clinicians and researchers promote interactions with other academic institutions, provide opportunities to demonstrate first-hand the strengths of our programs, stimulate recruiting, and generally raise the visibility and reputation of the OSU CVM.

The mobile iconic veterinary museum will be seen on display and in exhibition venues to chronicle veterinary medicine history.
The Museum on Wheels is now ready for internal and external collegiate and community events. This veterinary ambulatory truck is complete with veterinary instruments on display contributed by OSU College of Veterinary Medicine alumni.

The Fund is designed to provide clients a way to get their animals the care they need when the client may not be able to afford it at the time. It is also intended to provide treatment for stray animals in need of veterinary medical attention.
“The intention of the ‘pay it forward’ aspect is the hope that clients who use it will make contributions and that our class, our families, and the community will make yearly contributions to the fund,” explains Dr. Kaitlyn Coyes, class representative.
