Our History: Since 1948, UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine has been serving the public through statewide teaching, research and service programs benefiting animal health, public health and environmental health in California and beyond. In 2013, the Veterinary Center for Clinical Trials (VCCT) was established to provide centralized support for clinical trials. The VCCT is a “one-stop-shop” for your clinical trial needs: we establish connections, navigate the University and coordinate all aspects of your trial.
Our Facility: Faculty and highly trained staff treat more than 50,000 patients each year at the William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH), the home base of the nation's largest veterinary residency program. This hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, highly trained technical and nursing staff and internationally recognized faculty veterinarians in 34 specialty areas, including ophthalmology, oncology, cardiology, anesthesia/pain management, neurology/neurosurgery, regenerative medicine, nutrition, equine health, and more. Our connections with the UC Davis Medical School and the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) for human clinical trials provides us with a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary and translational collaborations.
