The City University of Hong Kong (CityU) College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences (School) is a joint collaboration with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, one of the top-ranked veterinary schools in the USA. CityU is privileged to have secured the expertise of Cornell, which has committed itself to the school project at least until the year 2023. Cornell will assist CityU to recruit faculty for the school and has already spent several years developing the curriculum and facilities with local staff. Following the establishment of the school, Cornell continues to foster its development by establishing joint appointments, creating bilateral training opportunities and overseeing outcomes assessment.
The veterinary school presents an exciting and unique opportunity for Hong Kong to be a leader in veterinary education in Asia. The continued development of Hong Kong as an education hub has always been a priority for Hong Kong, and City University’s strong life science research makes it an ideal place to position a school of veterinary medicine.
