Foundation Phase

The University of Washington School of Medicine MD program hosts 6 foundation phase site locations within the WWAMI region, each of which offers a unique regional experience. The foundation phase medical curriculum is consistent throughout the sites, and students take common final exams across all sites.

Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho residents attend the foundation phase of the curriculum in their own state. Washington residents have a choice of Spokane or Seattle for the foundation phase. Residents of states outside of the WWAMI region will attend the foundation phase in Seattle.
