Those interested in attending medical school are encouraged to attend an information session to learn more about a medical school cooperative that funds 20 new medical students a year. The presentation will be at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 6 in the Meyer Health and Sciences Building Room 106.
Mary Barinaga, assistant dean for regional affairs to the Idaho WWAMI program (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho), will give a presentation on the WWAMI program, which allows regional universities to share resources while educating medical students.
Students in the WWAMI program spend their first year of medical school in Moscow, Idaho, their second year in Seattle and their remaining two years at clinical sites in Idaho. Baringa will address Idaho’s efforts to create more residency training opportunities in Coeur d’Alene, which would allow students to remain in the state for all four years of their education.
The North Idaho College Health Professions Club is hosting the presentation.
