Under a new agreement, students from Daemen College in Amherst, N.Y., will be able to earn a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree through an accelerated program at Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine.
The memorandum of agreement—the first like this that LMU-CVM has established with another institution—was signed on April 20.
“We are excited to enter into this agreement with Daemen College,” said Glen F. Hoffsis, DVM, dean and vice president of the college. “LMU is proud of its new College of Veterinary Medicine and we are pleased to provide an opportunity for Daemen students to follow their dream of becoming a veterinarian.”
Under the agreement, Daemen students will attend the Amherst-based college for three years and then apply to advance to the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program at LMU in Harrogate, Tennessee. Upon completion of their first year at LMU, students will earn a bachelor’s degree in natural sciences from Daemen and continue with their veterinary studies that will lead to a DVM from Lincoln Memorial University.
The program will launch in fall 2015.
