The unique Global Animal Health Pathway is proceeding in the formal process for certificate status with the WSU Faculty Senate. Students completing the pathway, including a global animal health project, will be awarded a certificate in Global Animal Health concurrent with the Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. The Global Animal Health Pathway was designed to provide specific interdisciplinary education to students enrolled in the professional veterinary medical curriculum about the critical role that animal health has in global health, economic disparities, and the impact of disease control at the animal-human interface.

The GAHP advisory faculty group includes Drs. Guy Palmer, Terry McElwain, Mushtaq Memon, and Doug Jasmer who have identified the required and elective courses (15 credit hours of coursework are required for the global animal health pathway), and the global health project requirements for the GAHP certificate program.
