Student Success: Marshall Bell
Marshall Bell (’18 DVM) is a third year veterinary student at Washington State University. During his junior year as an undergraduate student at University of Washington – after a life altering experience working with animals in Costa Rica – Marshall became interested in veterinary medicine. Upon his return from Costa Rica and completion of his bachelor’s degree in biology, Marshall decided to pursue his newfound passion and began working at PAWS Wildlife Hospital and at a small animal clinic in Port Orchard. These experiences helped to solidify his decision to follow a career path in veterinary medicine. As a veterinary student at Washington State University, Marshall appreciates the collaborative learning environment and family feel at WSU. After his first year of veterinary medicine education, Marshall spent the summer working at Animal Surgical Clinic of Seattle, where he was able put his surgery skills he learned during his first year at WSU to the test. This past summer, Marshall dove into the world of research, where he worked at an internship at Seattle Genetics. After graduation in 2018, Marshall hopes to work at a small animal practice, though he has a strong interest in Ophthalmology so specialization may be a goal in the near future.
