In addition to being fully accredited, UMA also provides modern laboratory facilities and encourages students to work and problem solve together.

Our Veterinary Technology program is fully accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association Committee of Veterinary Technician Education and Activities. As an accredited program, upon graduation, students must pass the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE) and apply to the Maine Veterinary Medical Board to become licensed in the State of Maine.

On the UMA vet tech campus, you will find modern laboratory facilities and equipment as well as experienced faculty and staff. In addition to offering “smart” classroom technology, our facilities include a surgical suite, surgical prep and treatment area, separate feline and canine boarding rooms, and a radiology suite that utilizes digital technology. Major renovations were completed over the summer and fall of 2023 to provide more comforts for our students.

Veterinary Technician Organization (VTO)

The Veterinary Technician Organization (VTO) is a way for students to get to know each other. Students from all cohorts gather together to encourage camaraderie, mentoring, and to help students develop a respectable, social, and professional relationship among peers. In addition, it promotes students to become involved in service and community awareness.
