The Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences is developing world-class facilities for its various programmes.
In 2016, CityU has acquired full ownership of Hong Kong’s biggest companion animal clinic (PAVC, previously Peace Avenue Veterinary Clinic) which will provide internship opportunities for future veterinarians and veterinary nurses and technicians. With its 65,000 consultations a year, this clinic will lay the foundations in terms of caseload for our new veterinary clinic at Sham Shui Po (Trinity Towers).
The CityU Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory commenced operations on 4 December 2017.
In addition, we are developing a commercial fish farm in Sai Kung, a production animal farm and ambulatory service, equine facilities, other teaching venues such as wet and dry labs, and a clinical skills lab.
These facilities will provide a suitable environment for pre-clinical and clinical training with sufficient clinical caseloads and ensure a 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 their clinical service rotations. This ambulatory service will engage directly with local stakeholders, i.e. farmers, local veterinarians, feed suppliers and animal transporters. 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 College has received overwhelming support from local agricultural and livestock associations and we have signed several memoranda of understanding and agreements with several livestock associations and farms representing all the major animal species in Hong Kong.
