Mission Statement

The WikiVet™ mission is to become the prime site through which veterinary students, practitioners and associated parties can access reliable veterinary educational resources. This will place it in an influential position with the potential to impact on veterinary learning at a global level. Not only does this enable WikiVet to enhance the quality of veterinary education, but it can also go some way to addressing the disparity of access to veterinary knowledge in the less privileged veterinary schools of the world.
