Side by side headshots of two female physicians. Graduates of UW’s WWAMI Program Begin Practicing in Cowboy State

For nearly 25 years, newly graduated physicians from the Wyoming-WWAMI Medical Education Program at the University of Wyoming have focused on setting up in-state practices to bring their medical specialties to rural and underserved communities. However, they do not want the program to be one of the best-kept secrets in the Cowboy State.

UW is home to the state’s medical school -- the Wyoming-WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho) Medical Education Program. WWAMI students receive two years of foundations training in their home states and then spend two years traveling around the five states to practice clinical skills.

Once these medical students complete their residencies, they receive their medical degrees through the University of Washington School of Medicine. That is when the real adventure begins.

Students who begin their medical education on the UW campus sign a contractual agreement to return to Wyoming to practice medicine for at least three years, but not all medical school graduates are able to find a fit for their specialty in their home state. This year, 15 newly minted physicians are returning to the Cowboy State as fully trained physicians. Find out more about these Wyoming-WWAMI Graduates and where in the Cowboy State they'll be practicing!
