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.
