WWAMI is an enduring partnership between the University of Washington School of Medicine and the states of Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. The WWAMI name is derived from the first letter of each of the five cooperating states. The WWAMI program's purpose is to provide access to publicly supported medical education across the five-state region. The UW Medicine School of Medicine maintains a Dean's Office in each of the five states. These offices oversee clinical medical education for the School of Medicine within their regions, providing support services for the local clerkships and students rotating among them. WWAMI focuses not only on medical students but on students in K-12, college students, medical school graduates in residency and physicians in community practice. For detailed information on the WWAMI program please see the Internal Medicine WWAMI page or the WWAMI section of the UW Medicine site.
