University of Tennessee changes name of veterinary teaching hospital
Knoxville, Tenn. -- UT's W.W. Armistead Veterinary Teaching Hospital will now be known as the UT W.W. Armistead Veterinary Medical Center.
-- The University of Tennessee (UT) Institute of Agriculture has approved a name change for the UT W.W. Armistead Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The school will now be known as the UT W.W. Armistead Veterinary Medical Center (VMC).
Named after W.W. Armistead, the founding dean of the UT College of Veterinary Medicine, the facility opened in 1978, and has become much more than a teaching hospital, according to the school.
"Our passions include delivering exceptional veterinary medical and biomedical education to students and veterinarians, discovering new knowledge to advance the medical and surgical care of both animals and people. ensuring the safety of our nation's public health, and protecting the unique relationship that has developed over thousands of years between animals and humans," says Dr. Jim Thompson, veterinary college dean.
