<p>
Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences Hall (VBS) is home to the campus-based education and research programs of the School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (SVMBS).
</p>
<p>
One of the main programs based in VBS is the Professional Program in Veterinary Medicine (PPVM). The PPVM is a cooperative program between the University of Nebraska–Lincoln (UNL) and the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine (ISU-CVM). The PPVM provides 26 Nebraska students each year with a unique opportunity to complete their Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) while working with the faculty, programs and facilities of two premier regional land-grant universities. PPVM students complete the first two years of their professional veterinary education in Lincoln on the UNL campus and the final two years are completed on the Iowa State University campus in Ames, Iowa. Nebraska students are awarded their DVM by Iowa State University. The Nebraska students pay resident tuition for all four years of their education, a significant financial savings to the students. The inaugural class of the PPVM was admitted in the fall of 2007, earning their degrees in May of 2011.

Besides the PPVM, the School also is the home for several other educational programs. These programs include the Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Science, the Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Technology, the Nebraska Pre-Vet Program, and graduate programs at both the Master’s and PhD levels. Graduate programs in the SVMBS focus on health and disease with an emphasis on molecular and population biology methods.

The Veterinary Diagnostic Center building (VDC) houses the Nebraska Veterinary Diagnostic Center (NVDC). The NVDC assists veterinarians, livestock and pet owners, and others responsible for guarding and maintaining animal and human health through the detection, prevention, and understanding of animal and human diseases. The NVDC is responsible for providing timely and accurate diagnostics, participation in research activities, sharing information through scholarly publications, direct communication and consultation with clientele, participation in extension outreach and continuing education programs, and teaching contributions to the School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (SVMBS).
