Family Medicine Residency Program – Pullman
The WSU Family Medicine Residency Program in Pullman provides the unique opportunity to train all three years in a rural community. Our residents will graduate confident in their ability to manage a patient’s full spectrum of healthcare needs in rural, underserved communities with scarce resources and limited access to specialists.
MISSION & VISION
Our mission is to develop exceptional family medicine physicians who are ideally suited for rural practice.
We train family medicine physicians to:
- Provide comprehensive care for patients throughout their continuum of life
- Lead multidisciplinary teams within a patient-centered care model
- Serve diverse populations in rural communities
- Embrace lifelong learning with a continual growth mindset
- Training at an unopposed critical access hospital where residents will have ample opportunities to experience the full range of family medicine practice
- A high faculty-to-resident ratio means trainees get abundant one-on-one mentoring
- Extensive emergency department training
- Exposure to collegiate athletes in sports medicine rotations
- Opportunity to help shape a new residency program
We have three residents per year, with nine total.
Residents will train at Pullman Regional Hospital and its associated clinics. Pullman Regional is a 25-bed critical access hospital in the gorgeous Palouse region of eastern Washington. The hospital overlooks the Washington State University Pullman campus. Physicians and staff have a long history of teaching and eagerly seek to engage learners any time a unique case presents itself. As the only residency program on site, our family medicine residents are the hospital’s top priority for educational experiences.
