The DVM program in AVC is "fully accredited by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association, and it is recognized by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in the United Kingdom."
AVC's Doctor of Veterinary Medicine is a four-year professional degree program. Each year AVC accepts 68 students into its DVM program. Forty-one of AVC's annual seats are reserved for residents of Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick has 13 seats, Nova Scotia has 16 seats, Prince Edward Island has 10 seats, and Newfoundland and Labrador has 2 seats). The remaining seats available are for international students.
In addition to a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree program, AVC offers Master of Science (MSc), Master of Veterinary Science (MVSc) and Doctoral (PhD) programs within the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
