Vision & Mission


The vision of the Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences is to become a centre of excellence for education and research in Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences, and one of the twenty leading veterinary schools in the world within the next twenty years – our 20/20 vision.

Our mission is to establish, in partnership with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, a world-class veterinary programme and to train high-calibre veterinarians as well as biomedical and life sciences professionals who can respond to the grand challenges and societal needs of our time. The research, teaching and outreach activities of our college will advance the development of veterinary and human medicine, and our focus is on research excellence to understand the fundamental processes that underlie health and disease.

Our overall goal is to improve quality of life and the health of people, animals and the environment under the One Health paradigm, and to ensure sustainable food production through the promotion of animal welfare.
