Careers and Cases in Veterinary Medicine
In the animal health and nutrition industry, the Greater Kansas City area is the national leader. The Kansas City Animal Health Corridor, which stretches from Manhattan, Kansas, to Columbia, Missouri, accounts for one-third of the nation's $19 billion global animal health market. Companies and universities in this 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. While the Vet Med Series is geared to high school students, parents, teachers and the general public are encouraged to attend. K-State College of Veterinary Medicine faculty will be available the day of each lecture to meet with interested students and families.
