Event description

Description

Students from the University of Washington School of Medicine invite high school students to come and learn about the pathways to a career in medicine. Students will learn more about applying to medical school, what it’s like to be in medical school, as well as learning new skills such as splinting and taking blood pressure.

This workshop is specifically designed for high school students.


The state of Washington faces a growing shortage of primary care physicians, especially in rural and under-served areas. To better address this need, the University of Washington and Gonzaga University in 2016 created the Regional Health Partnership to educate and retain physicians and improve the health and vitality of communities throughout the region.

Students studying at the UW School of Medicine in Spokane complete their first 18 months of medical school – called the Foundations Phase – during courses in the Schoenberg Center on the Gonzaga campus, as well in the community. The Foundations Phase integrates basic science and clinical education, as well as rural training early in the curriculum and is taught by clinical skills instructors and foundations guides. Aspiring physician assistants in the UW’s MEDEX Northwest program in Spokane also take courses in on Gonzaga’s campus.
