The College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine was first inaugurated as the College of Agricultural Sciences in the academic year 1980/1981. At that time the academic structure included only two departments, namely, the Department of Plant Production and the Department of Animal Production.
The College of Agriculture & Veterinary Medicine (CAVM) – (The College’s new name from this academic year 2021-2022) - is a unique national asset. It is a beacon of distinctive learning that shares valuable knowledge regarding plant/animal health and production with youth aspiring to be future leaders/experts in these disciplines.
As a veterinary medicine student, the learning experience at UAEU university was challenging yet thrilling. The teaching faculty at the University did a remarkable job in delivering all the theoretical knowledge needed along with arranging practical hands-on experience to prepare us well for the workplace. The learning was continuously enforced by various assignments and research that gave us a better understanding on the veterinary situation in our country. And the practice included abroad learning which enforced our skills and gave insight on the progress of veterinary medicine in other countries. In my opinion, the major itself is not suppose to be easy but it is not hard either and what is fascinating the most about veterinary medicine is that you never stop learning. Additionally, veterinary medicine offers a large scope of work as there are various options either to work as a clinician in clinics, farms, stables etc. or as an administrative in an organizational entity. In my case, I was sponsored by Dubai Municipality as a student and as soon as I graduated, my job started in the small animal clinic in AlKhawaneej and I am currently working in Dubai Safari Park. As a wildlife veterinarian, I deal with different species every day and my responsibilities include ensuring that their health and welfare is being maintained. From initially small pets such as cats and dogs to wild animals like lions and elephants, the diversity and opportunity veterinary medicine offers is incredible and till this day I am still learning.
