About the College of Veterinary Medicine

Departments & Schools


The College of Veterinary Medicine is organized into departments, each dedicated to excellence in teaching, research and service. The newly created School for Global Animal Health will bring together top scientists, making the college a leader in solving the global health challenge.

Veterinary Clinical Sciences (VCS) includes the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The department teaches clinical subjects such as medicine, surgery, and radiology. VCS is responsible for teaching the majority of the third and fourth year professional curriculum and is home to the clinical training programs for intern and residents.

Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience has responsibility for the anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and neuroscience courses taught in the veterinary curriculum and is home to the undergraduate and graduate neuroscience programs.

Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology (VMP) provides core instruction in the veterinary curriculum in bacteriology, immunology, parasitology, pathology, public health, and virology and provides diagnostic services through the Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory.

 

The Paul G. Allen Center for Global Animal Health is the newest addition to the College of Veterinary Medicine. Building on the strengths of the Department of Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology (VMP) infectious disease program, researchers in the school are developing innovative strategies for the treatment and control of infectious diseases that directly affect human health and economic development, making WSU a leader in solving the global health challenge.
