Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine



The WSU Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine is training the next generation of doctors, speech pathologists, nutrition and exercise physiologists and more. Created to expand medical education and health care access across the state, our students are training in Washington’s communities for Washington’s communities.

Help us make a difference and support the health care leaders of the future and the dedicated clinicians and researchers who make your community a healthier place.

A new tradition begins!


Every professional needs the proper uniform and tools of the trade. During the first week of medical school, the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine provides each incoming medical student with a personalized white coat and crimson stethoscope.

WSU medical students will use their stethoscopes and white coats in simulation labs, while shadowing physicians at clinical sites, in their residency programs, and throughout their careers. These items are more than tools; they’re symbols of the journey from aspiring medical student to physician.

A gift of $250 sponsors one stethoscope and white coat!
