The University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna has been operating on the basis of a new organisational plan since 1 January 2024: it now has four departments with a total of 13 centres (instead of five departments, as is currently still the case in the menu on the left and in the overview below). The new structure was developed in 2023 in a university-wide participatory process and came into force following a decision by the Rectorate, approval by the Senate and authorisation by the University Council. With this reorganisation, Vetmeduni is ready to tackle future challenges in research, teaching, clinics and administration with even greater agility. Visible signs of the change and an important signal are, for example, a new Centre for System Transformation and Sustainability in Veterinary Medicine and the fact that, for the first time in the history of Vetmeduni, there is gender parity not only in the Rectorate, but also at departmental management level.
Over the next few months, all of these changes will be gradually introduced here on the website in coordination with the new department and centre heads, and an overview of the new organisational units and their managers is already available here:
