In terms of expertise, a VMD and DVM are exactly the same. The only difference between the two is the veterinary school that granted the degree. Graduates of the University of Pennsylvania receive a VMD the letters stand for the latan words for Veterinary Medical Doctor. DVM is an abbreviation for Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
