Degree Description:

The graduate program in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences (VCS) at Washington State University is a plan of study leading to a master’s degree, and preparing the resident for certification in his/her area of clinical assignment. The objectives of the program are to promote high standards of scholarly creativity, proficiency in a clinical discipline and professional service, experience in teaching, and independent and critical research. Areas of service and research may include: internal medicine, cardiology, ophthalmology, anesthesiology, neurology, surgery, radiology, clinical pathology, theriogenology, equine exercise physiology, exotic animal medicine, epidemiology, mastitis, and production medicine.

Admission Requirements:

Residencies are awarded based on selection via the Residency Matching Program, AAVC, 1024 Dublin Road, Columbus, Ohio 43215-1167. In those areas that lack a matching program (clinical pathology, e.g.), candidates will be recruited via national advertising and selected by faculty within the area. However, this is not always the case, as some residents are hired without enrolling in the matching program or national search. Applicants who recently graduated from an AVMA accredited school of veterinary medicine will not be required to submit GRE scores.
