If your goal is direct care of big and/or small animals, than a career in veterinary medicine may be for you.

Pave your way to dentistry, pharmacy or veterinarian medicine by starting your university experience at Lakeland College. These are the big 3 of pre-professional studies towards a doctorate degree. Every receiving university has different prerequisites. That means you might be a Lakeland for a year (30 credits), or two (60 credits). All of these professions have limited enrolments, so academic achievement is a critical. One benefit of starting at Lakeland is your access to labs, the size of lab classes and access to instructors.
