Veterinary Medicine

Guide to books for courses by year, plus publishing, pre-veterinary career information, access after leaving UTK, etc.

This page is curated by veterinary librarian Ann Viera as a service to veterinary students.

Inclusion criteria:  I  select what I think is relevant and supportive in order to save students' time.  For example, practice consolidation is a major issue in veterinary medical practice, so since 2016 I've included links to information about consolidations.

Inclusion on the page does not mean the source is endorsed by me or the UT Libraries or the CVM. 

There are limited career resources in veterinary medicine, a very small community of practice.

This page is checked once or twice a year and sources are added as I find them.  Suggestions welcome.
