TRUST Linkages to Residency

TRUST is committed to a continuum of Scholar training including the link between medical school and residency programs who are committed to nurturing your interests in rural and other underserved careers.

The following WWAMI network residency programs have created special opportunities for TRUST scholars during medical school and residency. At most programs Scholars who become residents will be able to continue working and training in their continuity community during each year of residency.

Tacoma Family Medicine

Tacoma Family Medicine is pleased to participate with the University of Washington (UW) in the Targeted Rural/Underserved Track (TRUST) Program. 

TFM has a long history of preparing residents for practice in both rural and urban underserved communities.  We have a well established curriculum, a network of community rotation sites in multiple states, and a one year post-residency Rural Family Medicine Fellowship.  This structure can easily integrate TRUST scholars and their host community.  This will provide an enhanced, integrated training experience and a path to possible early acceptance in the TFM Residency Program.

We will happily and diligently work with TRUST scholars (in the context of ACGME and Internal Medicine RRC requirements) to keep scholars either connected with their host communities when possible or provide opportunities to establish connections to new communities in the Northwest of interest to scholars. We are a smaller program that takes pride in creating a comfortable, fun, and rewarding learning environment while tailoring training to our residents’ career aspirations.

Providence Family Medicine Residency Spokane (PFMRS)


Providence Family Medicine Residency Spokane (PFMRS) is pleased to participate with the University of Washington (UW) in the Targeted Rural/Underserved Track (TRUST) Program.

The Targeted Rural and Underserved Track (TRUST) seeks to provide a continuous connection between underserved communities, medical education, and health professionals in our region. This means a medical student with an interest in our region would have the opportunity to have an ongoing experience with a particular region and residency training program from the first year of medical school through residency. The end goal is to provide these communities with physicians when they are done with training. Additionally, students in this program may be able to match early with a desired residency program without going through the full match process.
