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 running.

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 and practitioners.
