About Our Program
The Department of Veterinary Medicine under the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR) at the University of Maryland is home to the Veterinary Medical Sciences (VMSC) Graduate Program, which is a collaborative program between the University of Maryland, College Park and Virginia Tech under The Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.
The program offers both Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. Members of the VMSC Graduate Program faculty specialize in a wide range of research interests in infectious diseases and zoonoses, including cell and molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, virology, and poultry health management and disease prevention.
