St.Matthew's University School of Veterinary Medicine has agreements with numerous colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States and Canada to provide the important bridge from academic settings to real-world settings. By working with fourth-year veterinary students in North America, St. Matthew's University School of Veterinary Medicine students will have direct contact with patients of a variety of species and will have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment technologies.

Through a series of clinical rotations in St. Matthew's University's mixed-track programs, fourth year students will be allowed to experience a wide range of small- and large-animal hospital situations and will be called on to integrate knowledge they have acquired during the preclinical years at St. Matthew's. Key areas of focus include professional judgment, teamwork, problem-solving expertise, and communication skills. Students will have St.Matthew's University oversight by U.S.-based staff during their clinical rotations to ensure a great transition from the Grand Cayman campus, and success in all post-academic pursuits.
