Facilities

The School of Veterinary Medicine is developing world class facilities for its various programmes. The School recently acquired Hong Kong’s biggest companion animal clinic (Peace Avenue Veterinary Clinic). We are also developing a two-hectare marine aquaculture research centre in Sha Tau Kok, a marine centre on Kat O Island as well as a commercial fish farm in Sai Kung. In addition we are nearing completion of a veterinary disease research and diagnostic laboratory (operational early 2017), a production animal farm and ambulatory service, an equine hospital and teaching venues such as wet and dry labs and a clinical skills lab. These facilities will provide a suitable environment for pre-clinical training and sufficient clinical caseloads for students to be exposed to and gain experience with, a variety of species and ensure very strong and comprehensive clinical veterinary training.

 
 

Students will also have regular visits to commercial pig and poultry farms and riding schools as part of our ambulatory service rotations. This ambulatory service will engage directly with local stakeholders, i.e. farmers, local veterinarians, feed suppliers and animal transporters and form a bridge between them and consumers. An ambulatory service is currently lacking, and local farmers see the establishment of this service as essential in improving the health of their livestock and ensuring a safe food chain. As a result of our collaboration with local farms, the School has received overwhelming support from local agricultural and livestock associations and we have recently signed several memorandums of understanding and agreements with the following livestock associations and farms to cover all the major species;
