Opportunities in Medicine
Students studying at the UW School of Medicine in Spokane complete their first 18 months of medical school – called the Foundations Phase – during courses in the Schoenberg Center on the Gonzaga campus, as well in the community.
The Foundations Phase integrates basic science and clinical education, as well as rural training early in the curriculum and is taught by clinical skills instructors and foundations guides. Aspiring physician assistants in the UW’s MEDEX Northwest program in Spokane also take courses in on Gonzaga’s campus.
