Faculty are at the heart of all patient care, research and training in the department.
Core faculty are responsible for developing training at all levels, including medical students and physician assistant students, as well as residents (known as Graduate Medical Education) and physicians (Continuing Medical Education courses; fellowship teaching & mentoring). They also lead research designed to increase the quality, effectiveness, accessibility and sustainability of primary care.
Emeritus faculty include those who have retired from the department whose scholarly teaching and clinical service record has been highly meritorious. Emeritus appointments are be reserved for those faculty who have made sustained and substantial contributions to the mission of the Department and School. This rank requires at least ten years of prior service and achievement of the rank of Professor or Associate Professor
Clinical faculty consist of over 1,000 mostly volunteer teaching physicians throughout the WWAMI region. These providers, each with their own busy practice, are crucial to our education mission. The success of our training programs rests on their insight, experience & dedication. If your provider is on the list, please thank her or him for their commitment to training future doctors, nurses & physician assistants!
