One of the oldest veterinary colleges in the nation, the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine serves as an essential resource for the state of Michigan and the world. It provides unparalleled training for future veterinarians, world-class care for animals, and groundbreaking research aimed at attaining better health for animal and human populations. The college is organized into six departments: Large Animal Clinical Sciences, Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Pathobiology and Diagnostic Investigation, Pharmacology and Toxicology, Physiology, and Small Animal Clinical Sciences. The Veterinary Medical Center provides expert care to animals in need, treating more than 20,000 small animal patients per year and more than 2,000 large animals. The college also is home to the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health—one of the leading veterinary diagnostic labs in the world—and several research centers.

Dr. Jacobs is an Assistant Professor at the Large Animal Clinical Sciences, MSU School of Veterinary Medicine. Jacobs works as a clinician in the Large Animal Clinic, and her interests include lameness, orthopedics, regenerative medicine, and general elective surgery.

As a native of Michigan, Jacobs earned her Bachelors of Science in Zoology from Michigan State, and is a 2012 graduate of the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation, she completed a large animal rotating internship at the University of Pennsylvania, New Bolton Center. She then stayed at New Bolton Center to complete a three-year residency and a one-year fellowship in large animal surgery. During this time, she gained invaluable experience through a diverse, high-volume surgery and lameness caseload and interaction and mentorship from multiple world-renowned surgeons.
