Dr. Kerry Rood and members of the ZEW Club recently made a house call to ensure one lucky class guinea pig received the care he needed.
USU is a partner in the Washington–Idaho–Montana–Utah (WIMU) Regional Program in Veterinary Medicine. Under that program, our veterinary medicine students spend their first two years in Utah and finish the last two years of their Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree at Washington State University. 30 students are admitted to USU’s program each year. With the creation of the USU College of Veterinary Medicine, students will be able to spend all four years in Utah. Eventually, 80 students will be admitted each year, 40 of whom will be Utah residents.
The USU College of Veterinary Medicine is pursuing accreditation through the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education (AVMA COE) with the goal of admitting its first class of students in the fall of 2025. Until then, USU will continue to participate in the WIMU program.
