Great things are not done by an impulse, but by a series of little things that brought all together. 5 years’ journey at FPV UMK has taught me to develop my passion towards veterinary field. All the experiences, knowledge and skills that provided by FPV UMK really helped me to prepare myself in the work field.
Dr Muhamad Hariz bin Ibrahim, DVM Class of 2018
My five years in FPV have been marvellous. Lecturers have always been there to guide me to the right path though the learning process was real express and challenging. I was trained to present ideas, analyse information and share knowledge on animals with others. Most importantly, I learned how to be a veterinarian with right attitudes.

Throughout my 5 years at FPV UMK, I learned many valuable lessons, not only on the subject matter; but lessons of culture, diversity and friendship. FPV UMK is a melting pot of ideas, experiences and teachings that I believe I would not have had the chance of encountering anywhere else. From the well respected and formidable lecturers to the charismatic support staff, FPV UMK is definitely a place of growth, self-discovery and holistic learning for all the future veterinarians of Malaysia to come!
