The missions of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH) are:
- Providing excellent clinical care to our patients using state-of-the-art technology and the latest research discoveries.
- Building the future of the veterinary profession through hands-on training of residents, interns and fourth-year DVM students.
- Developing new medical and surgical treatments for managing disease in your pets and animals through the collaboration of clinical faculty members and basic research scientists.
The role of hospital administration is to support and facilitate all of these objectives.

The Hospital Director oversees all aspects of the hospital, sits on the College Executive Board and presides over the VTH Management Board, which is comprised of representation from all areas of the hospital.
The Hospital Administrator reports to the Director and oversees the day-to-day operations of the hospital, which include administrative areas such as the business office, reception/medical records, communications, and hospital stores.
Direct medical services for small and large animals, pharmacy, and diagnostic services are supported by the administrative team daily as they interact with each other, referring veterinarians, individual clients and students.
Each area of the VTH has a staff supervisor, and the medical areas have faculty leadership as well, forming a strong, cohesive matrix of administrative oversight for the hospital.
