We educate tomorrow’s veterinarians through innovative education programs and learning opportunities for professional veterinary medical students and graduate veterinarians. In the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital, fourth-year veterinary students, residents, and interns train alongside board-certified practitioners, which provides round-the-clock animal care. We are committed to improving the health and well-being of all animals through excellence in medical care and finding innovative ways to diagnose and treat disease.
