WSU building out a full portfolio of health sciences

Perspectives-logoSPOKANE, Wash. – Development of the Washington State University School of Medicine continues to attract attention from stakeholders and media, and it certainly will be the cornerstone of WSU Health Sciences Spokane. We remain on track to hire the inaugural dean, apply for accreditation and enroll our first class by fall 2017.

In addition to the medical school, however, we continue to develop all facets of our health sciences portfolio.

Over the past several years, we have moved the headquarters of two colleges – the College of Nursing and the College of Pharmacy – to the Spokane campus and created the College of Medical Sciences, also headquartered at WSU Spokane. President Floyd felt strongly about the interdisciplinary opportunities that would be created with all of our health science-based colleges co-located, and each of those colleges is thriving today.
