It gives me a great pleasure to introduce the website of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Jordan University of Science and Technology. Since its establishment in 1990, tremendous efforts were made to expand the human resources and building capacities to support the attainment of excellent student outcomes, better community services, and innovative research and discovery. By exploring our website, you will find out that our objective is to bring our vision of advancing both animal and human health to reality. Therefore, our mission is to benefit animals and people of the society by training veterinarians who have excellent clinical and problem-solving skills. Our Graduates are committed to competently and ethically carry out their duties of protecting animal health, animal well-being and welfare, in addition to contributing to public health and welfare. They are also prepared to provide quality care to farm animals, companion animals, poultry, and wildlife. Our graduates are also prepared to serve in areas of food inspection, hygiene, food safety, and public health.
The undergraduate and graduate programs are carefully designed to provide our graduates with the necessary theoretical and practical skills with great competencies to efficiently employ their knowledge to work in diagnosis and treatment, prevention and control of animal diseases and ailments, through better understanding of the mechanisms of transmission and pathogenesis of disease causing agents along with basic research that would help in the understanding the science behind immunity, illness and intervention. Those programs are delivered and supervised by highly qualified and dedicated faculty members who are graduates of reputable institutions in USA, Canada, Europe, Germany and Australia. All teaching, training and laboratory facilities are appropriately equipped to provide an environment conducive to innovative learning and research. The learning environment includes classrooms, teaching and research laboratories, the Veterinary Health Center, and the Animal House. There are plans and funds in place for building veterinary hospital.
The faculty is also actively engaged in community services and outreach as well as scientific research. The research outcomes of our faculty members along with their motivated graduate students contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the broad disciplines of medical and veterinary sciences.
The diverse expertise of our faculty members and the advanced facilities of the faculty offer a wealth of opportunities to public and private organizations and communities through continuing education programs, technical assistance, workshops, and consultations. The faculty is committed to providing continuing education opportunities for veterinarians in Jordan and the Arab World, and to increasing the awareness of the public for the role of veterinarians in the society.
Our faculty is enjoying fruitful collaborations with national, regional and international partners and is diligently working to receive international recognition and accreditation. It is currently a member of European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE) and is in process to achieve EAEVE full accreditation. In addition, the faculty is an active member of the Scientific Association of Arab Veterinary Medical Colleges and is housing its general secretariat.
