Students pursuing studies leading to a degree in veterinary medicine should follow a curriculum similar to that for pre-medicine. Courses in animal science, comparative vertebrate anatomy, animal physiology and biochemistry are of particular importance. Hands-on or practical experience in a veterinary clinic is often desirable. New Mexico has established contractual agreements with certain schools of veterinary medicine which permit competitive placement of a number of New Mexico residents each year.
