Annual Meeting Showcases Current and Future Growth of Medical Education

Greater Spokane Incorporated Annual Meeting

A record crowd of 1,100 members attended our Annual Meeting this week and heard from keynote speakers Lisa Brown, the Chancellor at WSU Spokane, and Paul Ramsey, the Dean of the UW School of Medicine, CEO of UW Medicine, and Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs.

Brown and Ramsey each voiced their support for expanded graduate medical education at Spokane’s Riverpoint Campus. Brown took the moment to announce that the business community in the Spokane region succeeded in its goal of raising $2.3 million to help fund second-year medical studies. Both Brown and Ramsey each pledged to increase the number of students studying medical education in Spokane by 40.

Take a look at the presentations given at the Annual Meeting:
