Penn Vet, formally known as the "University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine", gives the following descriptive information:
At Penn Vet, we think differently about veterinary medicine.
In addition to providing sophisticated medical treatments for animals of every size and kind, we believe veterinarians play an integral part in ensuring public health and food safety at both local and global levels, recognizing and controlling foreign and newly emerging diseases of livestock and poultry, including diseases transmissible from animals to people.
Our mission comprises teaching, healing, and scientific investigation. We believe that as veterinarians, we not only practice medicine and conduct groundbreaking research to advance all medicine, we teach the next generation to do the same.
We believe future veterinarians should serve as the frontline, guarding against bio- and agro-terrorism and working to protect the environment, all the while advancing the forefront of biomedical research. At Penn Vet, we lead the way for veterinarians of tomorrow.
