Delaware does not currently have a veterinary medical school. So the General Assembly years ago established the “Delaware Institute of Veterinary Medical Education.” This “Institute” financially supports Delaware residents who attend veterinary medical schools out of state. However, the point of the Institute was to get qualified veterinary personnel to practice in Delaware. And surprisingly, there are no current strings attached to that financial assitance requiring the student to practice for a time in Delaware following graduation.
House Bill 403 changes that. This bill requires recipients of this financial assistance to practice veterinary medicine in Delaware for a minimum of 2 years.
