Vet School 40th Annual Open House

Public has the opportunity to see behind the scenes of veterinary medicine. 

The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine will hold its annual open house, rain or shine, on the UT agricultural campus, located on Neyland Drive.  The tours are self-guided.

Children are encouraged to bring their stuffed animals to the Teddy Bear Clinic for veterinary students to examine. Guests will learn about physical rehabilitation and tour exhibits featuring small animal medicine, large animal medicine, community organizations, and pet rescue groups.  The anatomy lab with various skeletons and plastinated specimen is always a crowd favorite. Canine and equine parades of breeds are scheduled throughout the day. Guests can also enjoy learning about various farm animal breeds.

No registration for individuals is necessary.  Please do not bring pets to Open House.  Groups of 15 or more are asked to visit the “frequently asked questions” section of the website at for further guidelines.

The veterinary open house is held each year to better acquaint the public with veterinary medicine and services provided at the UT College of Veterinary Medicine, which was established in 1974.
