Faculty of Veterinary Science                                                                                                                quirófano






The Faculty of Veterinary Science, founded in 1983, resumes the legacy of the former Special School of Veterinary Science (1882-1924) -originally seated in Santiago- as the only center in the Autonomic Community of Galicia to form Veterinary Science professionals.

Its quality has been certified by the JEC ( Joint Education Commite), what means the Veterinary Science Degree complies not only with the requirements of the European Directives 78/1026 and 78/1027, but also with those defined by the Advisory Committee on Veterinary Training (III/F/5171/7/92). These facts are a demonstration of the commitment for a continuos improvement in veterinary education, research and innovation. An important role to achieve this goal is played by the Veterinary Teaching Hospital "Rof Codina" (HVU-RC) improving the Faculty teaching, promoting clinical research and  scientific innovation.

Coordinator: Profª Dra. Patricia Fernández de Trocóniz, Vicedean of students and mobility programmes.
