Schwarzman AMC relies on the generosity of our donors to sustain key components of our mission: education, research, and charitable care. • Schwarzman AMC’s 13 Community Funds assist pets whose owners are unable to afford either basic or life-saving care. These funds also support rescue animals, guide dogs, and retired police and military dogs with free or subsidized care. • Schwarzman AMC is the largest postgraduate veterinary teaching institution in the world. Over 2,500 residents and interns have trained at Schwarzman AMC, with many going on to become board-certified specialists, clinical researchers, and educators, ensuring a legacy of veterinary excellence that extends far beyond our hospital’s walls. • Schwarzman AMC veterinarians regularly conduct clinical trials and publish research studies in the most respected journals. Our research initiatives include collaborations with prominent human medical centers such as Weill Cornell Medicine, The Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and NYU Langone Health. • Schwarzman AMC’s Usdan Institute for Animal Health Education delivers up-to-date information about pet health, not only to those who use our clinical services, but to pet owners worldwide.
