University thankful for Grand Coulee physicians who teach
Last updated 11/21/2018 at 9:53am
In Grand Coulee and throughout eastern Washington, physicians are the backbone of our communities. For the past 45 years, UW School of Medicine faculty and clinical partners have taught and mentored our students as a way of “paying it forward,” and today, our network has grown to nearly 1,000 individuals.
You are truly fortunate to have teaching physicians in your community. Not only are they outstanding clinicians, they are dedicated to providing our students with the best medical education possible. When these students become the next generation of physicians, they will have received the training necessary to deliver high quality care where it’s needed most.
Solving physician workforce issues is only possible through skilled physician teachers and a supportive community. So, at this time of giving thanks, I want to say “thank you” to the physicians in Grand Coulee on behalf of the UW School of Medicine, for training our future physicians for the communities of Eastern Washington.
