[Extract] The School of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences at James Cook University first accepted students into a five-year undergraduate course in veterinary science in 2006 and to date the School has produced three cohorts of graduates which taken together have added 147 new veterinarians to the workforce. As one of three undergraduate programs established in Australia over the last decade, JCU has confronted resourcerelated and attitudinal challenges while developing the new course, some of which were common to all veterinary schools over this period, with others being more germane to the new schools. By and large these challenges have been successfully met, the veterinary course at JCU has established an early and distinctive identity and is on a pathway to long term sustainability.
