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.
Clients & facilitators need to be on campus the day before the DC begins
