Graduates of UFCVM have found careers in Florida, throughout the United States and overseas in fields ranging from traditional small and large animal practice, zoological and aquatic medicine, public health, epidemiology and the military.

UFCVM has also graduated over 200 individuals who are committed to advancing scientific medical knowledge, working in academia, biomedical sciences, government and industry to advance animal, human and environmental health.
