Swine Medicine Education Center

What is SMEC?

The Swine Medicine Education Center is dedicated to providing veterinary students and practicing veterinarians from across the United States and around the world with extensive hands-on experiences and education in swine health and production

Mission Statement
The mission of the Swine Medicine Education Center is to collect and synthesize the best practices for clinical swine medicine and to translate and disseminate those practices to stakeholders who can apply them to improve swine health, ensure pork safety, maintain sustainability, and conserve resources.

Since September 2011 the SMEC has trained students from 17 domestic veterinary schools and 27 countries with both on-farm and distance learning modules. We are motivated to make a global impact to advance production practices, welfare of animals, and provide the best pedagogy for students.
