Holding a strategic position in the northwest of the state of São Paulo, FMVA offers the only free course of Veterinary Medicine in a radius of 200 kilometers from Araçatuba. The school prestige is such that, besides supplying the regional demand, it annually attracts applicants from several regions and from other states.


During the undergraduation in Veterinary Medicine, the students are in contact with different species of small animals, such as dogs and cats, and with production animals, among which ovines, bovines, and swine. The course objective is to train professionals who, besides the specific medical-veterinary knowledge, know the basics of economy and management demanded by the market, and who are able to perform cutting-edge research in several areas.


The graduate specialization in Animal Production Systems Management aims at meeting the demand by professionals with a broad view of the production system, the ability necessary to plan and manage actions focused on the improvement of the economic results, the quality assurance, and the sustainability of the activity.


The Graduation Program in Animal Science of the School of Veterinary Medicine of Unesp is intended for professionals and researchers with a profile which is compatible with its scope areas: Medical and Surgical Pathophysiology (master’s degree and doctorate), Preventive Veterinary Medicine and Animal Production (master’s degree), and Preventive Veterinary Medicine (doctorate).
