Course Requirements

The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) shows required coursework for individual schools. These include basic sciences and humanities courses. Below are Sewanee courses that are equivalent courses to those listed by AAVMC. Please be aware that some schools will accept variant courses offered at Sewanee under a different name, while others will not. Thus, be sure you are taking the required courses for the schools you are interested in attending by contacting their admissions office and reviewing each school's admissions requirements.


The Office of Medical and Health Programs (OMHP), partnering with the Sewanee Health Professions Society (SHPS), provides both leadership development opportunities for students interested in tutoring and one-on-one peer tutoring for students seeking tutoring. All peer tutors have not only succeeded in the courses in which they tutor, but they have also been shown to be good teachers and mentors.
