Supporting Agriculture in the Local Community

The Tufts Ambulatory Service is one of Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine's most community-oriented facilities. From its home in Woodstock, Connecticut, the ambulatory clinic is a base for Cummings faculty to assist New England farmers with their livestock populations, while providing veterinary students with valuable first-hand experience in farm animal medicine.

The Ambulatory Service, in addition to serving as a teaching facility for the Cummings School's farm-animal medicine program, is a busy veterinary clinic and a continuing-education center, offering expertise that helps more than 200 farmers throughout New England boost the economic viability of their farms.

As part of Beyond Boundaries: The Campaign for Tufts, the Cummings School seeks to raise $2 million to fund the newly constructed 6,000-square-foot facility for the Ambulatory Service, completed in January, 2008. Your support for this project will ensure a skilled workforce of veterinarians in farm-animal medicine, will boost local production of quality food and dairy products, and will help preserve the New England tradition of the family farm.
