New England Board of Higher Education, Wellesley, MA. New England Library Information Network.
This report documents the need for and presents well-founded recommendations for the establishment of a college of veterinary medicine to serve New England and New Jersey. The need for a veterinary medicine college is discussed in relation to today's veterinarians, and future shortage estimations. Major recommendations suggest that (1) a regional college of veterinary medicine be established within New England or New Jersey. (2) The proposed college be cooperatively founded and supported by the New England States and New Jersey. (3) The initial capitalization and continuing operational funding of the college be equitably shared by the New England States and New Jersey. (4) The proposed regional college be closely allied with a medical school whose library, research, and clinical facilities will be available as a necessary complement to the veterinary medical program. (5) The functions of the proposed college include professional education and research, continuing education of veterinarians, consultation and referral services and extension activities. A 24-item bibliography and appendices of related material are included. (MJM)
