The new, nationally accredited Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine will welcome its inaugural class of medical students in August 2017. It is named after the university’s late president, Elson S. Floyd, who believed that WSU, as the state’s land-grant institution, should train doctors to serve all of Washington.
While the first two years of medical school will primarily be on the WSU Health Sciences Spokane campus, the third and fourth years will be in community-based clinical training in partnership with hospitals and clinics across the state in Everett, Spokane, Tri-Cities and Vancouver, where WSU campuses are located.
President Floyd’s vision was of a bold, audacious, visionary and innovative medical school. Learn more about his dream and how WSU Tri-Cities will be involved.
