UW Medical Education Program Updates State Leaders

WWAMI Medical Education students meet with Governor Mark Gordon.

University of Wyoming WWAMI Medical Education Program students pose for a photo with Gov. Mark Gordon, who stands near the middle of the group, during their visit to Cheyenne earlier this week. 

Wyoming leaders received updates on the expansion of the University of Wyoming’s WWAMI Medical Education Program and met members of the new class of medical students this week.

Among those attending a luncheon at the Cheyenne Depot were faculty and staff from the program; state legislators; physicians and educators from both UW family medicine residency programs; graduates of the program; and students in the WWAMI 2018-19 class.

Through WWAMI -- which stands for Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho -- Wyoming students attend UW for the first year of medical school before earning their degrees from the University of Washington School of Medicine. Starting this fall, the medical students will spend the first semester of their second year at the University of Wyoming. Wyoming’s WWAMI students must return to the state to practice medicine for three years after completing residency, or they must repay the state the amount of money expended on their behalf.

Timothy Robinson, director of the WWAMI Medical Education Program in Wyoming, noted that the program has grown from the inaugural class of 10 students in 1997 to 40 medical students in fall 2019 -- 20 first-year and 20 second-year students -- on the University of Wyoming campus. Nearly $1.5 million in state-funded facility upgrades have occurred over the last two years, including a state-of-the-art human cadaver lab, two active-learning classrooms and a new dedicated study space for WWAMI students.
