Hi Naomy,

You become a veterinarian by going to veterinary school. Veterinary medicine is a graduate degree, so you need to earn a bachelors first.

Please find a list of veterinary programs in the US here:

You should start to prepare for a career in veterinary medicine in high-school. Since it is heavily based on science, take all the classes in biology, chemistry and math you can so you have a good foundation. Also look for opportunities to do an internship or volunteer with a vet hospital.

Before you can apply to vet school, you need to earn a bachelors degree (4 years). Majoring in biology or chemistry or biochemistry are good options. Check with the vet schools you would consider which courses are pre-requisites so you don't miss anything that might not be in the curriculum that you are doing.

Admission to vet school is competitive, so make sure you have a high GPA and a high score on the GRE. You'll also need experience in the vet field which you get through internships or volunteering. You'll also need letters of recommendation and a personal statement.

Veterinary school will also take around 4 years, and you'll graduate as a doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM).

Take the licensing exam, and you can practice as a veterinarian.

You find the general details here (but check with the school you want to attend, what their requirements are since there can be variations):

I hope this helps, and good luck on your path!

There are various online courses in the subjects you are interested in. When it comes to professional education, you can get a college degree in that field.
Thank you comment icon Hi Amalya! Do you have any specific online courses you can recommend Naomy or can you give her some advice about how to find them? Sharyn Grose, Admin
