Biographical / Historical
Since 1962, the Faculty has operated on two sites, at Summerhall and at the Easter Bush Veterinary Centre, near Roslin, six miles south of Edinburgh. This split was rendered necessary because of the growing difficulty of obtaining large animal clinical material at Summerhall. Two site operation means that each of the undergraduate years can be exposed to work with farm animals and horses in an appropriate rural setting. Sited within the University's developing Technopole, the Easter Bush Veterinary Centre forms part of one of the most comprehensive aggregations of rural and agricultural research institutes in the world.
