Welcome to the Veterinary Clinical Investigations Center

Welcome to the Veterinary Clinical Investigations Center at the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. We are a centralized department for the advancement and coordination of clinical studies and trials at MJR-VHUP. Please browse through our site to find out more about our exciting research and how you and your pet can be a part of this wonderful field.

The VCIC consists of a group of veterinarians and veterinary nurses dedicated to the advancement of veterinary clinical studies and trials both inside and outside of MJR-VHUP. We work closely with faculty, staff, residents and interns within MJR-VHUP as well as with outside foundations and industry.

The University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine has been innovating and advancing veterinary medicine since its founding in 1884. Penn Vet consists of two renowned veterinary clinical hospitals, the Matthew J. Ryan Hospital for Small/Companion Animals and the George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals.
