Curriculum

Our students receive exceptional cased-based and hands-on training with renowned faculty, an innovative education curriculum, and an unmatched network of academic support.

WSU shaped me to be the veterinarian I always aspired to be – a doctor who knows more than just medicine, a leader, a communicator, supporter, and teacher. My curriculum challenged me to balance the rigor of hard sciences like anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pharmacology with the skills of communication and ethics that come with the profession. In particular, I think classes like communication set me up for success in being able to connect with clients in a clinical setting.

NAVLE

North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) results for WSU veterinary students


Accreditation – The AVMA Council on Education® (AVMA COE®) accredits DVM or equivalent educational programs. The AVMA COE assures that minimum standards in veterinary medical education are met by all AVMA-accredited colleges of veterinary medicine, and that students enrolled in those colleges receive an education which will prepare them for entry-level positions in the profession. The WSU College of Veterinary Medicine underwent accreditation review in 2017 and the current status is accredited. The next accreditation review will be in 2024.
