Free Animal Medicine and Veterinary Studies Courses

Two top universities offer Veterinary and Animal Medicine courses online for free. Whether you are in school to become a veterinarian, or simply have a love for animals, learn more through these top notch courses without spending a fortune on tuition.

Utah State University

The University Extension courses offered by Utah State University cover a number of alternative topics, including farming and gardening topics. Two farming topics focus on specific farm animals and therefore are related to Veterinary Medicine. Both courses include relatively short video lectures which may be streamed or downloaded for later viewing.

Tufts University

Tufts' Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine offers seven reputable courses for people who wish to learn about animal husbandry, veterinary medicine, and wildlife. Zoological Medicine covers not only care of zoo species, but also animals in their natural habitat or pets that don't get as much veterinary attention, such as birds and fish. In the Law and Veterinary Medicine course, students learn about the legal and ethical proceedings animal doctors need to be aware of.
