What Residents are Saying

Chayle Turner

“Family medicine in Pullman is a true full-spectrum learning experience. It’s a unique setting, with a university and engineering company in the center of a large agricultural area that brings a great variety of patients, wellness, and disease. They have a robust pediatric practice, plenty of OB, a wide variety and high frequency of procedures, a free clinic, and inpatient opportunities. The clinic is incredibly well equipped and well-rounded with inclusion of urgent care and mental health. The primary care teams tackle a great deal of specialized and complicated problems in both individual patient care and community health and are always eager to get learners involved at every level. It’s an ideal place to learn every aspect of family medicine, along with the more complex challenges of rural healthcare, with a group of people who really love their careers, patients, and community.”
