When you come to WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, you know you are someplace special. Founded in 1899, we are one of the oldest colleges of veterinary medicine in the country with one of the best equipped Veterinary Teaching Hospitals in the nation. Each year our hospital treats thousands of patients including companion animals, horses and livestock, and exotics (e.g., camels, reptiles, raptors).
We encourage our students to train at WSU’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital starting in their very first year. Our highly accomplished faculty work side-by-side with students providing hands-on experience right from the beginning. Courses in client communication, diagnostic challenges, and business skills, give our students the tools they need to succeed.
Students in our Washington-Idaho-Montana-Utah (WIMU) Regional Program in Veterinary Medicine benefit from small class size and a big network. The small class sizes at Utah State University and Montana State University provide personalized attention while offering the same opportunities for professional growth and the development of clinical, leadership, and interpersonal skills for all students across the Regional Program.
WSU graduates go on to be leading clinicians, diagnosticians, researchers and professors around the world.
