Washington State University is a land grant, comprehensive research institution with an enrollment of approximately 19,500 students on the Pullman campus. There are eleven colleges offering doctoral degrees in 46 disciplines; masters and bachelor’s degrees are offered in 67 areas of study. The University is one of the largest residential universities in the Northwest and Pullman offers a safe, friendly, small-town living environment. Branch campuses are located in three urban communities across the state.
The Department of Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology is one of five departments/schools in the College of Veterinary Medicine. The departmental mission is “to enhance animal and public health through teaching veterinary and graduate students, training veterinary pathology and microbiology residents, and conducting biomedical research in infectious diseases/immunology”. The department takes pride in what we believe is an environment that fosters collaboration, creativity, personal and professional growth, and productivity. Although few faculty members are personally involved in all the traditional missions of teaching, research, and service, we value and seek excellence in all three.
