This Manifesto deals with the Single‐Cycle Degree in Veterinary Medicine of the Università degli Studi di Milano.
In compliance with art. 11, comma 2, Law 19 November 1990, n. 341, with art. 12 , M.D. 22 October 2004, n. 270 and the policies in M.D. 26 July 2007, n. 386, and in the respect of teaching freedom as well as of rights and duties of professors and students, this Manifesto specifies the organization concerning the Single‐Cycle Degree in Veterinary Medicine, in relation to the connected Teaching Norms, as defined in University Teaching Regulations, according to Degree Class LM 42, as in M.D. 16 March 2007, and according to the rules defined in the General and Didactic Regulations of Veterinary Medicine Degree Course.

General and Specific Educational Goals
Pursuant to the provisions of M.D. 270 dated 22 October 2004 (Changes of Regulations as to University Teaching Autonomy approved by M.D. 3 November 1999, n.509 issued by the University, Scientific and Technological Research Ministry), and of M.D. 386 dated 26 July 2007 (Applied Policies), following the qualifying instructional aims given in a Class, the five‐year curriculum of the Single‐Cycle Degree Course in Veterinary Medicine focuses on the fundamental education and expertise necessary to graduates for their veterinary profession; thus, theoretical knowledge and skills indispensable to their professional practice will be acquired gradually through the culture‐related and professional disciplines identified below and within a clear, qualifying training design.
Career opportunities for a DVM refer to university curriculum information and are arranged in ISTAT classes 2.3.1.4.0 (Group and Class: Life Sciences specialists; Category and Profession: veterinaries and assimilated). To practice as a veterinarian, most employments require a State License based on a public examination. Employments can be found firstly within specific areas of the National Health Service (Animal Health, Food, Environment, and Animal Welfare) and, after obtaining required qualifications, both in Local Health Services and in Experimental Zootechnic Institutes. Then, in the zootechnic industry (Animal Feed, Nutritional Supplements, Genetic Selection and Production Development), in the pharmaceutical industry (Consultancy, Technical Support, Research and Development, Regulation and Registration), and in the food industry (Production Hygiene, Processing Technologies and Animal Food Production Management). Last, in the traditional areas of private practice such as surgical and obstetrical‐gynaecological Clinics in private surgeries and on‐site for pets and livestock, but also in the la test field of behavioural sciences. New opportunities are to be found in international and EU organizations fostering cooperation and development.

Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.

Exchange opportunities
The Veterinary Medicine Degree Course offers educational opportunities abroad, within the Erasmus + project, with the possibility of stays of 3 to 9 months and with full recognition of the credits obtained at the host university. The foreign faculties with which bilateral exchange agreements are in place are numerous and located in the Iberian Peninsula (Barcelona, Leon, Santiago de Compostela, Zaragoza, Madrid, Cordoba, Porto and Lisbon), in Austria (Vienna), in Germany (Munich) , in Belgium (Ghent), in France (Paris) and in Romania (Cluj Napoca and Timisoara). Students participate in the selections starting from the second year of the course and can follow all the courses of the third, fourth and fifth year abroad and take the relative exams. Furthermore, Erasmus + is a good opportunity to acquire credits associated with practical and professional activities such as internships and those chosen by the student. A few months before departure, students are received by the Degree Course Erasmus tutor to evaluate which courses and practicals to follow abroad and fill in the learning agreement, the study program document that will accompany the student abroad. At return, the career is evaluated, the credits obtained are assessed with the same tutor and recognized by the Interdepartmental Degree Course Committee. The Erasmus + project then, through other types of stays abroad, such as Placements, allows internships even at the end of the course or during the first year after graduation. Placement grants support work placements at research centers or veterinary clinics, able to provide an international approach to the profession and often opening up good job opportunities. The Veterinary Medicine Degree Course participate also to other international programs such as the Erasmus Mundus Sigma Agile hosting students from the Balkans.
