Grow and Learn Alongside a World Class Team
As part of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, UW Veterinary Care is workplace where there’s always something new to learn – whether it comes from participating in a clinical study or exploring innovative approaches to treatment. We’re proud to offer staff of all different levels of experience an enriching environment with ample training opportunities.
We have big plans for our future and yours
The UW School of Veterinary Medicine is growing, and we’re constructing a new state-of-the-art facility in order to extend our research and patient care capabilities even further. This expansion and renovation will double the size of the small animal hospital and significantly enhance the large animal hospital. In addition to creating new learning spaces and labs and increasing diagnostic imaging capabilities, the small animal hospital will be home to a new cancer center and the large animal hospital will contain a covered arena.
