DVM News Letter Cover Story June 2017

Dominic Eickert (’17 DVM) isn’t getting a lot of vacation after graduating this May as he is leaping right into a prized internship at Alamo Pintado Equine Medical Center. Over the course of the year Dominic will be moving through various rotations within the medical center, including radiology, anesthesia, surgery, ICU, and overnights. Dominic credits obtaining this internship in part to his time working as a technician in the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital during his first three years as a DVM student at Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. During his time in the VTH, Dominic was able to get to know the clinicians and residents, hear about their past experiences, and get their advice on post-graduation options. Working in the WSU VTH also opened up opportunities for Dominic to participate in various equine research, including Dr. Warwick Bayly’s research on the evaluation of performance capacity in race horses and Dr. Jen Gold’s research on exercise induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH) in barrel racing horses. Throughout his time at WSU CVM, Dominic has also been involved in a host of other activities including participating in the Theriogenology, Agricultural Animal, and the American Association of Equine Practitioners clubs, as well as serving as treasurer of the Pathology Club. After completing his internship at Alamo Pintado, Dominic plans to pursue an equine surgical residency.



Over 118 people – prospective applicants and their guests – convened at the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine on Saturday, March 25, 2017 for the annual DVM@WSU recruitment event. Participants learned in-depth information about the application process and gained an insider’s glance at unique opportunities available through WSU/WIMU including the WSU Clinical Simulation Center, summer rotations for second and third year students, veterinary student clubs, and the Northwest Bovine Veterinary Experience Program. Current veterinary students spoke extensively with participants about their experiences in the WIMU program, both as part of a student panel and one-on-one with prospective students and their guests. Finally, participants were treated to a tour of the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital by current veterinary students. Are you interested in applying to our program but missed DVM@WSU? Do you have questions about our program and the application process? Please email us at with any questions, to set up a meeting with an admissions representative, or to request a tour of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Our next DVM@WSU will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018. We hope to see you there!

WSU’s Behavior Service: Treating the Whole Patient

Dr. Fanucchi with Rowdy

"It is not one thing that you do, it is a combination of many things—chemical, nutritional, and behavioral therapy. If the brain is not balanced, no amount of training will solve the problem.”
— Dr. Leticia Fanucchi,
