Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine at WSU

The Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine is a public medical school headquartered in Spokane, Washington. Founded in 2015, it is part of Washington State University, and is the second public medical school in the state of Washington. It welcomed its inaugural class in the fall of 2017, joining the University of Washington and Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences (a private medical school in Yakima) as one of three medical schools in the state. In July 2015, the board of regents announced their intention to name the medical school after the late WSU president Elson Floyd; the name was officially changed to the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine in September of that year.  After a national search, Dr. John Tomkowiak was selected as the founding dean. The school uses a community-based model of medical education, training physicians for the first two years on the WSU Health Sciences campus in Spokane. After that, the students are distributed across four regional campuses located in: Everett, Spokane, Tri-Cities, and Vancouver.  We currently have 60 students in the 2017 class and 60 students in the 2018 class.  The 2019 class will grow to 80 students. All admitted students to the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine have ties to Washington State.
