Family Medicine Residency Program – Pullman
Pullman is an ideal place to practice medicine, especially for those interested in the full scope of experiences uniquely available to family medicine physicians. At the WSU Family Medicine Residency Program in Pullman, residents learn to excel in rural environments where they will manage their patients’ full spectrum of health care needs. Our residents get the hands-on experience to face whatever their professional future in rural medicine holds.
The Family Medicine Residency Program – Pullman received Initial Accreditation from the ACGME in April 2021, one of the first residency programs based entirely in a critical access hospital to do so. The program will welcome its first cohort of residents in 2022.
Our mission is to recruit, develop, and retain exceptional family medicine physicians who are ideally suited for rural practice in the 21st century.
Our graduates will be competent, caring, compassionate, and ethical physicians who are at home in rural Washington and are culturally competent in the primary care of a diverse rural population.
