Foundation Phase

The University of Washington School of Medicine MD program hosts 6 foundations phase site locations within the WWAMI region, each of which offers a unique regional experience. The foundations 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 foundations phase of the curriculum in their own state. Washington residents have a choice of Spokane or Seattle for the foundations phase. Residents of states outside of the WWAMI region will attend the foundations phase in Seattle.
