UAF nearing partnership for veterinary program

- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The University of Alaska Fairbanks is nearing agreement on a partnership that would establish a new veterinary medicine program. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the proposal would allow the school and Colorado State University to jointly offer a veterinary degree. Under terms of the deal, details of which haven't yet been finalized, UAF would provide the first two years of graduate-level study and Colorado State would provide the final two. The arrangement would allow UAF to provide a limited number of students with access to a top-tier veterinary school without the expense of maintaining a full program. Paul Layer, a UAF dean, says Alaska is currently the only state that doesn't have a veterinary school or a partnership with a state that does.
