Dean, Atlantic Veterinary College at UPEI
We are small enough to know our students by name while at the same time, able to offer world-class opportunities.

Welcome to the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) at the University of Prince Edward Island.

Since admitting our first class in 1986, we have been a fully accredited College and have experienced remarkable success and growth. As veterinary medicine plays an increasingly critical role in protecting public health and food safety, demand for AVC educational, research, and service programs is at an unprecedented level.

To meet ever-growing demand for our programs and services, we have recently completed an extensive expansion and renovation to our College. This includes a new AVC Research Complex, a new Learning Commons and significant expansion and renovation to our Veterinary Teaching Hospital. We are modern, well-equipped and offer superb infrastructure for our education and research programs.

At the Atlantic Veterinary College we take great pride in providing a top quality education. We are small enough to know our students by name while at the same time, able to offer world-class opportunities. We are focussed on fostering innovation and academic excellence. In our ongoing pursuit of excellence, we engaged in a comprehensive planning process in 2009 that resulted in the development of a five-year Strategic Plan for the College. Guided by this plan, we are moving forward into the future as a leader in educating the veterinary medicine and research leaders of tomorrow. Together, we are making a difference at home and around the world.

On behalf of the AVC's leadership team, Welcome!
