The veterinary program at Murdoch University has established a reputation for excellence since the first class graduated in 1979.
Murdoch’s veterinary degree is fully accredited by the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC) and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) in the UK. It was also the first in Australia to receive accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Council on Education, enabling Murdoch veterinary graduates to succeed in many parts of the world.
Since 2014, Murdoch University has offered a five-year veterinary degree program, comprising an integrated Bachelor of Science (Veterinary Biology) and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM). Introduction of the DVM, defined as a master’s degree within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF level 9), has provided opportunities to combine hands-on clinical training, veterinary professional life skills, research experience, and species-group electives (streaming) across the latter years of the degree.
