The state of Washington faces a growing shortage of primary care physicians, especially in rural and underserved areas. To solve that issue, the University of Washington School of Medicine is expanding its Spokane campus to produce and retain more physicians. Here’s why the UW’s medical school — ranked No. 1 in the country in primary care, and family and rural medicine education by U.S. News & World Report — is the most cost-effective choice to meet the healthcare needs of all Washingtonians.
