Pre-veterinary medicine is what you do before veterinary school (that's what the pre is for). Veterinary medicine is not a major. It isn't done at the undergraduate level but rather the graduate level. In order to get into vet school you must complete the pre-veterinary requirements and most likey you will need a bachelor's degree in some field.
Yes, there is a difference.
Veterinary medicine focuses on clinical skills - examination, diagnosis, treatment. Veterinary bioscience focuses on research skills.
Veterinary medicine is the degree for a veterinarian, the doctor that examines, diagnoses and treats pets. Veterinary technician is the name of both the degree and the position that assists the veterinarian.
Both are performed by Doctors of Veterinary Medicine, and they both work with animals. If you heal sick animals, you are practicing veterinary medicine. If you make specialized animal feeds--say, one that makes cows' milk contain more fat, so you can make more pounds of butter per 100 pounds of milk, you are practicing veterinary science.
D.M.V. stands for the Department of Motor Vehicles. D.V.M. stands for Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
Pre-veterinary medicine is a major available at some schools for an undergraduate (Bachelor's) degree. Veterinary medicine is the major that students enrolled in graduate school (vet school) take. Those who want to be a veterinarian must complete the veterinary medicine major at a vet school; it is not required for a veterinarian to have completed the pre-veterinary medicine major for a Bachelor's degree. However, the pre-vet major does focus on ensuring that students enrolled in the program will have completed all pre-requisite classes to apply to vet school.
DVSc is a doctorate of veterinary science, an advanced degree specifically within the field of veterinary medicine. A PhD is a doctorate of philosophy, which may be any discipline from psychology to economics.
The Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris (VMD) degree is only awarded to veterinarians by the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA. It is equivalent to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree awarded by all other US veterinary schools. The difference stems from the origin of the Penn School of Veterinary Medicine as the Veterinary Department of the Medical School. As the Medical School awarded the Medicinae Doctoris (MD) degree to graduate physicians, it was consistent to use a similar Latin format for the veterinary degree. With a similar origin, the Penn School of Dental Medicine awards the Dentariae Medicinae Doctoris (DMD) to dentists.
Literature is good. Medicine is evil.
There is no difference, just a matter of semantics. However, It is typically referred to as Doctor of Medicine.
That is going to depend on what organization is granting those titles. Each state/country determines it's own laws governing the practice of veterinary medicine. In the US, there are no states with legal requirements for education or training of veterinary assistants so if this position is listed in the US, the term is based on the requirements set by the employer or whatever private entity is certifying veterinary assistants. However, veterinary assistant titles/credentials hold no legal weight anywhere in the US.
