About

The Department of Veterinary Medicine was established in 1981 by the University of Southern Mindanao in response to regional poultry and livestock needs.  It was envisioned to produce competent veterinarians who will participate in boosting livestock and poultry productivity.  Aside from providing manpower for instruction, research, extension and production, the graduates are also expected to help safeguard the public from animal diseases that are transmissible to human beings.

Since 1981 up to mid 1988, the Department was a unit of the College of Agriculture.  On July 8, 1988, the Department was converted into the Institute of Veterinary Medicine.  Since then, the Institute became a separate academic unit of the University of Southern Mindanao.

It was realized however, that the present set-up of the unit of is working against the objective of the University, i.e.:  to create a strong impact in the said field of specialization.  To satisfy the requirement set by the Technical Panel for Agricultural Education, Resolution No. 24, s, 1994 recommended the conversion of the Institute of Veterinary Medicine to Regents of the University of Southern Mindanao held at DECS Office Ultra, Pasig City o November 10, 1994.

The college was presented an Award of Distinction as Center of Excellence of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine with all the rights and privileges effective February 27,2009 to February 27,2012 by the Office of the President and the Commission on Higher Education. The College was also awarded level III accredited in its Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program by the AACCUP, Inc.
