A $25,000 scholarship in equine internal medicine has been established in the name of Provost Warwick Bayly in the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine.
Bayly was dean of the veterinary college 2001-2008 and recently was named provost. He earlier served as an equine professor, hospital director in Veterinary Clinical Sciences, acting chair of Veterinary Clinical Medicine and Surgery, associate dean for the college’s continuing education program, and interim chair of the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences prior to his appointment as dean.
“For 30 years, Dr. Warwick Bayly has been a force for change and progress in equine medicine while serving as one of the best educators, administrators and friends to all in this college,” said Richard DeBowes, WSU associate dean of veterinary development and external relations and a fellow equine veterinarian.
In 1995, Bayly was named the first four-year Robert B. McEachern Distinguished Professor in Equine Medicine. He was honored as Washington Veterinarian of the Year in 2006.
He is past president of the World Equine Veterinary Association and the Washington State Veterinary Medical Association.
Originally from Melbourne, Australia, 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, Bayly was awarded a doctorate from the University of Liege in Belgium.
