The WSU College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM), http://www.vetmed.wsu.edu/, is organized into five departments, including VCS, Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology (VMP), Integrative Physiology and Neuroscience (IPN), the School of Molecular Biosciences (SMB), and the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health each dedicated to excellence in teaching, research and service. The CVM and VCS faculty have research strengths in infectious diseases, pain management, and neuroscience.
