For Clients and Facilitators
Welcome to the client and facilitator page. Here you'll find all you
need to know about becoming a Diagnostic Challenge client and the
resources you need as a DC facilitator. WSU is the only veterinary
college that offers this type of training to its students.
The Diagnostic Challenges are multidisciplinary, case-based exercises
that began at WSU in 1991 to help students learn in a simulated "real
world" setting. The exercises are now conducted collaboratively by
instructors in Pathology, Clinical Pathology, Bacteriology/Mycology,
Virology, Immunology and Toxicology. Visiting veterinarians, mostly
WSU CVM alumni, play an increasingly important role as case
facilitators. In addition, important contributions are made by faculty
and staff in Radiology, Large and Small Animal Medicine, WSU's Animal
Health Library, The CVM Office of Student Services and BCU.
Clients & facilitators need to be on campus the day before the DC
- DC1 (Pullman): October 8 - 11 (Tuesday -
- DC1 (Logan): October 15-18 (Tuesday -
- DC2: November 12-15 (Tuesday - Friday)
Please note that Monday, Nov 11 is
Veteran's Day and that Thanksgiving is a week later this
year, starting Nov. 25.)
