Community Hosting and Homestay Program
Support Washington’s Future Physicians
The Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine was founded on the vision of “inspiring people to solve problems in challenging health care environments.” To help realize that vision, the college is committed to developing connections between our students and the community in which they will train.
Our MD students will study and gain clinical experience at one of our four campuses located across the state in Everett, Spokane, the Tri-Cities, and Vancouver. Students will spend the majority of their first two years on the Spokane campus for their classes; however, there will be six individual weeks, called ‘clinical campus weeks’, during the first two years that the students will be in the city they will be assigned to for their third and fourth years.
In order to welcome, support, and orient our students, we are looking for families and individuals in the local communities of Everett, Spokane, the Tri-Cities, and Vancouver who would be willing to host a student during the six clinical campus weeks from September 2022 through April 2024.
Homestay Hosts in Everett, Tri-Cities and Vancouver will be assigned a student and will provide housing for them during each clinical campus week. In addition, they will be asked to plan activities or events during the clinical campus weeks to introduce their student to members of the community. Spokane Hosts will be listed in a Spokane Community Connection Directory for students to make connections.
Now accepting applications for the 2022–2023 Period!
