A veterinary school is a tertiary educational institution, or part of such an institution, which is involved in the education of veterinarians.

A department of animal science usually offers a pre-veterinary school curriculum, teaches the biomedical sciences, and provides graduate veterinary education in disciplines such as microbiology, virology, and molecular biology. The terminology can be confusing, as many veterinary schools outside North America use the title "Faculty of Veterinary Science" rather than "college of veterinary medicine" or "school of veterinary medicine," and some veterinary schools use the term "department" rather than college or school.
