Veterinary Medicine Program was established based on a letter from Department of National Education, Directorate General of Higher Education No. 2953/D/T/2008 about the implementation of UB's Veterinary Medicine Program. Starting on Academic Year of 2008/2009, the Program has accepted students. On Academic Year 2009/2010, the Program enrolled students twice as many as the previous year.
As one of the efforts to increase the number of Indonesian veterinarians and the answer to the needs of veterinary personnels, Veterinary Medicine Program in both, public and private universities are opened.
