Clinical teaching is provided by a board certified faculty of family physicians, pediatricians, psychologists, an internist, and a pharmacologist in addition to over one hundred community physicians that volunteer thousands of hours. All clinical faculty spend time in clinical practice, assuring clinical and technical competency. Masters level organization development and business and finance faculty round out the faculty team.
The CWFM-R faculty bring a wealth of experience to the program. Each faculty member has special areas of interest, training, and experience which are complementary and enable the program to train physicians for a broad spectrum of service to rural and under-served populations. In addition to the teaching of residents, faculty members spend time precepting students.
Central Washington Family Medicine continuity clinics serve as sites for the required family medicine clerkships for the University of Washington School of Medicine and Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences.
We also offer fourth year sub-internships for students from U.S. medical schools, educate pediatric dental residents, provide clinical training for physician assistant, nursing and doctor of pharmacy students, and job shadow opportunities for local high school and college students.
