Partnership with Idaho School of Medicine ranks #1

The University of Washington School of Medicine, which partners with the University of Idaho in a multi-state medical education program, ranked first among the best schools in medicine.

The school took first place in the nation for primary care education and family medicine training, according to U.S. News & World Report rankings.

The partnership with U of I offers an in-state medical school program for Idaho students who want to join the medical profession.

“It allows our students, people of Idaho, to go to our state’s medical school and get top-notch experience,” the dean and director of Idaho WWAMI told the University of I, Jeff Seegmiller.

The school has ranked among the top two schools for training in family medicine for the past 30 years and this is the 27th time the school has been awarded number one for primary care since 1995.

“The ingredients in this amazing thing are truly WWAMI,” Seegmiller said. “We have this amazing experience where students from Washington and Alaska and Montana and Idaho who are all in the same cohort learning the same content bring that brand diversity without a touring schedule and allow our students to grow up in Idaho, learn and train in Idaho and stay in Idaho and come back to practice in Idaho.
