Richard Smith, M.D. Endowed Scholarship in MEDEX Northwest
This endowment provides assistance to students in the UW School of Medicine’s physician assistant program. The fund honors the professional contributions of Richard Smith, M.D., who — with Raymond E. Vath, M.D. ’65, Res. ’69, and Jerry Bassett, M.D. — helped establish MEDEX Northwest at the University of Washington. Dr. Smith was instrumental in making the program and its graduates an integral part of the spectrum of medical education offered by the UW School of Medicine.
