College of Veterinary Medicine
Healthy Animals. Healthy People. Healthy Planet.
At Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, we are dedicated to improving the lives of animals and people at home and around the world through enhancing health and well-being. Faculty members in the college’s three departments— the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, the Department of Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience, and the Department of Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology—are accomplished educators, researchers, and leaders in their fields, including veterinary surgery, immunology and infectious diseases, physiology, pharmacology, neurobiology, and clinical practice. The Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health brings together top scientists, making the college a leader in solving the global health challenge. In 2010 the School of Molecular Biosciences moved to the college to create a larger group of biomedical research scientists and strengthen existing collaborations.
Our students work side-by-side with accomplished researchers in highly ranked programs for scientific investigation, clinical specialties, and diagnostic capabilities. Graduates from the college earning degrees in veterinary medicine, neuroscience, biochemistry, genetics and cell biology, or microbiology go on to be leading clinicians, diagnosticians, researchers, and professors across the globe.
Please consider a gift to support the Veterinary Medicine priorities below:
MRI Fundraising Campaign
The WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital is the only place in the Pacific Northwest and western Canada that offers high-field MRI that can accurately diagnose patients large and small. In the last 5 years, more than 2000 animals have received MRI scans. Dogs, cats, horses, bald eagles, grizzly bears, sheep, and even a ferret have received enhanced diagnosis—often lifesaving—with this sophisticated machine. For equine patients, MRI is the best way to accurately diagnose soft tissue injuries in a horse’s hoof, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. But after 18 years, its lifespan is quickly approaching its end. For our patients the time to act is now. More information can be found here: http://giving.vetmed.wsu.edu/giving-opportunities/mri-campaign.
Margin of Excellence
Each year, the College of Veterinary Medicine, in its unrelenting dedication to world-class education and research, conducts exceptional programs, creates student scholarships, and provides state-of-the-art technologies to its faculty and students. Maintaining this margin of excellence is only possible through the generous annual support of alumni and friends. Gifts to the Margin of Excellence Fund provide continued support to our faculty, students, and outstanding programs in the college.
Rabies Vaccination Program
“Eliminating rabies is a win-win-win for people, dogs and endangered wildlife.” —Felix Lankester, clinical assistant professor for the Allen School
The WSU Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health works with international partners to help reduce the threat of rabies to people in and around the Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania. The goal is to use this rabies-free vaccination zone—a cordon sanitaire—as a model in other parts of Africa and Asia. More information about the rabies program can be found here: http://globalhealth.wsu.edu/research-intervention/control-of-disease-transmission/Rabies-Vaccination-Program.
School of Molecular Biosciences Development Fund
Donations made to the general fund will help support the areas of greatest need as determined by the Director of SMB. Funds have been used to support travel to meetings, seminar speakers, the annual school retreat, and more.
Humane Society Partnership Fund
Because of this partnership, WSU veterinary students will receive high-quality, high-volume general veterinary medical and surgical training each year, something not currently possible at the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Pullman. This unique opportunity will provide an extraordinary enhancement to the education of our students in community-based, wellness-centered primary care.
