CityU is the first University in the region to offer a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine (BVM), with the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University as our international partner. The 6-year BVM, established in 2017, has received provisional accreditation from the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council Inc (AVBC).

The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences (VCS) was established in 2020 in the Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences (JCC) at CityU. VCS has a clear vision to be Asia’s preeminent body advancing veterinary clinical science in response to evolving societal needs. Our strategic goals include attracting world-class clinical faculty to secure full accreditation of the BVM with AVBC and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), establishing Hong Kong’s first academic post-graduate veterinary residency-training programmes, establishing an outstanding clinical research environment to deliver outcomes that benefit all species, and fostering strong community engagement through excellent clinical service and outreach.

The position will be appointed on clinical track or tenure track.

Applications and nominations are invited for the above posts:

Duties

The appointee will provide didactic and laboratory teaching. S/he will also support students on clinical rotations which begin in 2022.
