Programmes Philosophy

The Department of Veterinary Pathology came into being in 2012 as a component of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. It started as the Department of Physiology based on a formal agreement between the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The terms of agreement contracted the Kansas State University to establish a standard Veterinary School to produce qualified Veterinarians, develop programmes for postgraduate training and research in various fields of Veterinary Medicine, train qualified Nigerians to staff and administer the Faculty and advise on facilities and programmes for further growth in physical and academic fields.
