The School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM) is associated with the Department of Animal, Dairy and Veterinary Sciences (ADVS) at Utah State University (USU). The USU-SVM participates in the Washington-Idaho-Montana-Utah (WIMU) Regional Program in Veterinary Medicine. In partnership with the Washington State University (WSU) College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM), the School of Veterinary Medicine offers a professional degree in veterinary medicine.
The WIMU Regional Program in Veterinary Medicine operates under WSU’s American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) accreditation and leads to the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM). The Logan (USU) site for the WIMU Regional Program accepts 20 students from Utah and 10 non-resident students per year.
Students spend their first two years receiving pre-clinical training at USU’s Logan campus. They spend the final two years at WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Pullman, Washington completing the clinical portion of their veterinary education.
USU’s School of Veterinary Medicine has dedicated, internationally recognized faculty members and state-or-the-art teaching, animal and research facilities.
WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine is one of the nation’s top veterinary schools. It has one of the best-equipped teaching hospitals in the world and distinguished faculty members who are recognized as leaders in the field and respected worldwide.
Why experience only one university, enjoy an exceptional educational experience by attending two world-class universities for your veterinary education. The inaugural USU-SVM class started their veterinary education in the fall of 2012 and is now in Pullman. Our "pioneers" will graduate with their DVM degrees in the spring of 2016.
