Seattle Post-Intelligencer, July 24, 2008
A new Pacific Northwest medical school has celebrated its opening. The College of Osteopathic Medicine plans to send primary care doctors to serve in rural and low-income areas in a five-state region. Seventy percent of the students are from the Pacific Northwest. The college already has agreements with hospitals, clinics and doctors in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana to provide clinical training to students in their third and fourth years.
