Expanding medical education in Washington

With healthcare changing rapidly, it’s not enough for Washington to simply follow the nation – Washington needs to lead the nation. The University of Washington’s WWAMI program was groundbreaking when it launched more than 40 years ago, and it continues to lead the nation in healthcare innovation.

U.S. News & World Report ranks the University of Washington’s School of Medicine as the No. 1 primary care program in the country, No. 1 in family medicine and No. 1 in rural medicine.

The University of Washington’s expansion of its medical school in Spokane and an increase in residency positions are among the ways to best meet the economic and healthcare needs in Spokane and throughout the state.



The innovative WWAMI program has given Washington residents access to the top-ranked public medical school education in the United States.
