Our department contributes through teaching, research and dissimination within veterinary clinical sciences to pre- and post-graduate education of veterinarians in Denmark and to the research-based development of veterinary clinical practice. 

Our mission is to work for the benefit of animals and humans, and we do this through research, teaching, innovation and propagation at a work place based on shared values. 

Our vision is to build on strong and internationally recognized scientific disciplines and build new standards for cross-disciplinary research, education and innovation within animal health and disease. Our aim is to be among the best public workplaces in Denmark.
