Study Plan and Academic Areas:

In order to prepare Veterinarians with high quality standards, a ten semester period is required. The first eight semesters are oriented towards theory-practice activity and the last two are completely practical.
The program has a horizontal, dynamic and flexible curriculum which is methodologically distributed in four areas: Biological, Economic-Administrative, Research and Social-Humanistic.


The Biological area includes all basic fundamentals applied to animal health and production, following a methodology that integrates basic sciences simultaneously around each one of the different systems that make up an animal organism.

The Economic-Administrative area of the program is an essential aspect of training which provides graduates with the necessary tools to make them responsible for their own professional and personal growth process, the development of leadership abilities, employment generation and the strengthening of economic growth.

Research plays an extra- curricular role that seeks to promote a search for answers to problems and situations posed during their practice; answers that will allow, students, even from the very beginning of their careers, to expand their knowledge in the field.

The Social-Humanistic area also constitutes an important part of the program. Its goal is that of preparing individuals who can contribute to society in general as both professionals and citizens.
