College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine

About us

Find out about our organisation, history and values.

The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine comprises two schools: the Edinburgh Medical School and the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.

Together we form a unique grouping in the UK where vets, medics and biomedical scientists work together and study the common causes of disease that affect our populations.

Our campuses, our structure, and the organisation of our degrees ensures that we have people from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and Edinburgh Medical School breathing the same air, designing projects together, and teaching in their specialist areas.
