Graduate Medical Education

About us

Washington State University was established in 1890 as a public research university committed to its land-grant heritage and tradition of service to society. The Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine is Washington’s community-based medical school. Named after Washington State University’s late president, Dr. Elson S. Floyd, the college was created in 2015, to expand medical education and health care access in communities, filling critical health care gaps across the state. The WSU College of Medicine’s Graduate Medical Education (GME) training programs are in alignment with this service to society. As a community based medical school, our GME programs focus on the need of our communities, collaborating with them to help improve access and quality of care. Our GME mission resonates throughout all our training programs.

To improve the health of the communities we serve, by fostering rigorous, high-quality, comprehensive, and culturally relevant graduate medical education programs enabling the development of independent physician scholars and leaders.

The WSU College of Medicine is committed to supporting excellence in graduate medical education. This is consistent with the mission, vision, values, and strategic direction of the college and University. By utilizing its diverse resources throughout the state of Washington, GME at the WSU College of Medicine strives to meet our region’s needs, identifying, creating, and developing the necessary training programs to accommodate the communities we serve.
