Washington State University Equine Scholarship Named for Top Vet

The Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine has established a $25,000 scholarship in equine internal medicine in the name of the vet school's Dean Warwick Bayly, BVSc, MS, PhD. Bayly has often assisted The Horse magazine and TheHorse.com as a source in a variety of articles.

According to an article on horsetalk.co.nz, the Australian-born Bayly has been at WSU for nearly 30 years and has served as dean of the veterinary college since 2001. Recently he accepted the position of Washington State University's provost. He was named Washington Veterinarian of the Year in 2006.

Bayly is a past president of the World Equine Veterinary Association, as well as the Washington State Veterinary Medical Association.

Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Dr Bayly earned his veterinary degree from Melbourne University in 1974. He served residencies in equine medicine and surgery at both Texas A&M and Ohio State Universities. While at Ohio State, he earned a master's degree in 1979 before coming to WSU. He was board certified in large animal internal medicine in 1987. In 1999, Dr. Bayly was awarded a doctorate from the University of Liege in Belgium.

Bayly, or "Waz" as he is known to his friends and colleagues, has focused much of his career's work on equine performance issues. If you are interested in contributing to the Warwick Bayly Scholarship in Equine Internal Medicine, visit http://www.vetmed.wsu.edu/depts-prd/programs/Bayly.aspx.
