The WSU Clinical Simulation Center
The WSU Clinical Simulation Center offers hands-on surgical training to
veterinary students beginning their very first year. Using a peer-based
teaching approach, the center offers exceptional training. Students have
the opportunity to use simulation models from basic suturing to models that
give an accurate feel of actual exam or surgical procedures.

Because our students will be better prepared in basic and more advanced
technical and clinical skills, they will enter the workforce with more
confidence and the ability to work more independently. For hiring clinics,
this means that our highly-trained graduates will be able to hit the ground
The center's mission is to provide a positive, enriching, and supportive
educational environment at all levels of training. The labs are currently
open to WSU veterinary students, interns, and residents. In the next five
years, the goal is to expand educational opportunities to veterinary staff

"As a teaching assistant for the lab, I can say first had that I have
watched students at WSU grow in their surgery skills in ways that students
don't have opportunities to until the third year in other programs."
