"To produce competent graduates in the practice of general Veterinary Medicine and Management"
In response to the demand for more animal technicians, the Bachelor of Science in Animal Technology was under the Department of Animal and Veterinary Science of the College of Agriculture.
Seven years later, the integrated ladder-type BSAT-DVM curriculum was approved by the Board of Trustees (Res. No. 7, s. 1982). This Curriculum offered common courses for the first three years and thereafter, a student may opt to take up BSAT or DVM Degree.
In 1984, the Department was transformed into the College Veterinary Medicine (Res. No. 65, s. 1985). Because of the standard requirement imposed by the Veterinary Medicine sub-committee of the technical panel on Agricultural Education, the BSAT-DVM curriculum was saparated into two distinct degree programs: a 4-year curriculum leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Animal Technology, and a 6-year curriculum leading to Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
In March 1997, the BSAT curriculum was phased out (Res. no. 764, s. 1997) and only the DVM curriculum is now offered. The College has three departments, namely: Department of Basic Sciences, Department of Para-clinical Sciences and Department of Clinical Sciences.
Since its establishment, the college has contributed quality manpower nationwide and which dominates the rank and file of major livestock and agricultural institutions in the Cordillera Region.
To keep abreast with globalization and quality education, the program is periodically visited by various accrediting bodies like Professional Regulation Comission (PRC), Technical panel for Agricultural Education (TPAE), Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACUP), Inc.
