A major new addition to UCAM for the coming academic year is the Bachelor's Degree in Veterinary Medicine, which will be taught in a bilingual classroom mode at Los Jerónimos Campus and will include veterinary disciplines such as physiotherapy, animal welfare and aquaculture to complement the clinical training of the students.

The degree, whose classes will commence next September, has the required authorisation of the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation of Spain (ANECA) and of the General Conference on University Policy, as well as the recent approval of the Inter-University Council of the Region of Murcia. Final approval for the implementation of the degree programme is expected to be given in the next few days by the University Council of the Autonomous Community.


UCAM has opened the pre-enrolment period for this degree, with 60 places available.


As with all its degrees, UCAM guarantees a direct relationship with the profession to students of this Degree. This will be provided through cutting-edge learning models, with all-inclusive modern facilities, equipped with the most innovative technology, based on advanced simulation environments, with unique clinical simulators in Europe, such as the TraumaFX® Advanced Canine Medical Trainer (K9 Diesel), as well as the detachable canine phantom for ultrasound, X-ray and CT. Students will be able to perform clinical internships both in the Small Animal Hospital, which is equipped with all the necessary facilities for professional practice, and in our own Large Animal Hospital, which they will begin to use in the third year.

State-of-the-art Technology

The Degree will have available unique models in Europe with high healthcare technology linked to computer systems that greatly increase the learning possibilities by enabling students to work in multiple physiological and pathological situations and to handle complex clinical situations in real life-like conditions. These are located in a furnished environment such as the surgical care, resuscitation or clinical consultation areas, and it has been shown that creating these simulated scenarios places students in a realistic situation.
