Veterinary and Medical Science students at JCU benefit from our extensive research expertise in tropical animal and veterinary science.

Facilities on the Townsville campus for veterinary science students include teaching laboratories, a range of livestock in paddocks and yards, small animal pens and access to JCU’s own cattle station at nearby Charters Towers, Fletcherview.

Students gain the skills to diagnose, treat and prevent diseases in pets, livestock, aquatic species and native fauna. In their final year, students undergo clinical placements in a range of settings across northern Queensland at JCU facilities in Townsville, the Atherton Tableland and Mackay, as well as local veterinary hospitals and practices and in government agencies.
