Washington State University
When you come to WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, you know you are someplace special. Founded in 1899, we are one of the longest established 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 small animal, food animal, equine, and exotics.
We encourage our students to train at WSU’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital 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.
