Explore the Distributed Clinical Campuses

Let medical school take you to the place you call home

Learning across the state

Your first two years in the medical education program will take place on the Washington State University Spokane campus. Your final two years of medical school could take place at one of four Washington State University distributed clinical campuses: Spokane, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, or Everett.

You will have the opportunity to rank campuses in your order of your preference. Your ultimate destination will be strongly influenced by how you ranked the campuses. No matter which campus you attend, you will work in a variety of clinical settings nearby.

You are invited to explore the four WSU distributed clinical campuses. Please take the time to visit. If you need more information, you are more than welcome to get in touch.

Everett

The WSU North Puget Sound at Everett campus sits in a waterfront community less than a 45-minute drive north of Seattle. It is home to an international shipping port and the largest public marina on the nation’s west coast. A massive Boeing Company aircraft assembly plant fuels the local economy.

As a third- and fourth-year medical student in Everett, your home base will be a new, state-of-the-art building at 911 Broadway, across the street from the Everett Community College campus. You’ll be within walking distance from your clinical rotations at Providence Regional Medical Center.

Tri-Cities

You’ll find the WSU Tri-Cities campus along the banks of the Columbia River in the city of Richland. As the name “Tri-Cities” suggests, the region forms the junction of three communities: Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco. Together, their population approaches 200,000.

If you love sunny weather, the Tri-Cities could be your paradise. In a typical year, residents enjoy more than 300 sun-filled days. A warm climate, panoramic views and abundant outdoor recreational opportunities make this region a favorite destination for vacationers. Plus, the Tri-Cities lie at the epicenter of Washington wine country. A variety of local celebrations allow you to experience the wine, food, and culture of the region.

Vancouver

The WSU Vancouver campus is surrounded by nature at its most majestic. The Columbia River rolls through the region just 10 miles south of campus. Look to the east and you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains. More than 6 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trails wind through the campus’ tree-lined grounds and forested land.

With a population of more than 170,000, the city of Vancouver anchors the southwest corner of the state. You’ll find charming shops, outstanding restaurants, and a rich menu of cultural events. If you crave the attractions of an even larger urban hub, just hop in your car. It’s less than 30 minutes to Portland.
