Unknown-180

From the Newsbeat blog: an update on hearings held during this third week of the legislative session. The Senate Higher Education Committee heard from the college’s Dr. Ken Roberts who provided testimony on progress to date. The budget request for the college is one of the priority requests for Washington State University. Easy to take action if you support the charter class of students, who will be welcomed this coming August.

Dr. Ken Roberts, Vice Dean for Academic and Community Partnerships, provided a status update on the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine to the Senate Higher Education committee Tuesday.

In October, the college received preliminary accreditation status, giving the University permission to begin the student recruiting process. In the narrow month-long admissions window, the College received over 700 applications. Of those 700, 340 interviews have been planned for the 60 spots in the College’s inaugural class.

Dr. Roberts update goes over next steps in the process, including an outline on the first and second year teaching curriculum and how the College is modeling its program towards the overarching goal of expanding healthcare options in underserved areas of the state and producing physicians who will serve in rural regions.
