What do you think makes our program special or unique?

The WSU program is special for the unique community it builds, by bringing together the Washington, Utah, and Montana campuses. Additionally, the Diagnostic Challenge, only offered at WSU, is an opportunity to bring the campuses together, and foster critical skills for our future veterinary careers. WSU ties community and education together in a special way, that you just can’t find anywhere else.

WIMU faculty are:

Supportive, challenging, and even humorous at times. The faculty are a huge part of what makes the WIMU program so special — they genuinely care about helping each of us succeed in our future careers as veterinarians.

Club opportunities are:

There are a wide variety of clubs to choose from in the WIMU Program, with clubs for Aquatics, Veterinary Law & Ethics, Dental, Animal Behavior, and many more! I love having the ability to explore topics more in-depth or outside the curriculum during club lunch lectures. Additionally, several clubs coordinate hands-on opportunities to gain practical skills in areas like dental radiographs/extractions, proper snake handling, or necropsy labs.
