FAIRBANKS, Alaska- Colorado State University is partnering with the University of Alaska Fairbanks to bring a veterinary medicine program to Alaska.

Under a deal signed Thursday, students will be allowed to take two years of graduate courses at the University of Alaska before completing their doctor of veterinary medicine degree medicine program at Colorado State in Fort Collins, Colo. The program begins in 2015 and will give preference to Alaskans. As many as 10 Alaskans will be admitted yearly.
The venture will also open up teaching and research opportunities in Alaska for graduate students and scientists from Colorado State.
The joint program has been discussed for years. The University of Alaska Regents in 2011 approved $400,000 in preliminary funding.
