Careers and Cases in Veterinary Medicine

In the animal health and nutrition industry, the Greater KC area is the national leader, making the area from Manhattan, KS to Columbia, MO America’s Animal Health Corridor. Companies and universities in our area lead the nation in animal health and nutrition research, innovation, business functions and production.  Training the future workforce for this industry begins with our students. The program is geared to high school students, but parents, teachers and the general public are invited to attend.  K-State College of Veterinary Medicine faculty will be available the day of each lecture to meet with interested students/families.
