WWAMI Medical Student Compares Seattle to Laramie for Outcomes in Medical Education

November 25, 2019

WWAMI medical students standing with research poster.Wyoming WWAMI is Wyoming’s medical school, based at the University of Wyoming.

While the curriculum of WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho) is advertised as being identical at each of the partnering states’ campuses, students and stakeholders of the program can’t help but wonder what things are unique to each site -- both positive and negative.

In terms of patient populations, Seattle students have exposure to cases drawing from a population that is close to 750,000 people, compared to just under 35,000 residents of Laramie. Recently, Seattle WWAMI student Sandra Ritchie experienced both anatomy lab and classroom medical instruction in Laramie.
