Because of limits required to minimize the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, many veterinary colleges plan changes to their operations this fall. Some have changed dates for the fall semester, and several are planning a combination of in-person and remote teaching. At some schools, classes will be split, with students rotating between home and live attendance to allow adequate social distancing on campus. Some colleges are also installing cameras and other equipment to allow those viewing remotely to attend surgeries and other clinical procedures.

For more discussion on the ways that veterinary colleges are coping with the pandemic, see the AVMA's news page.
