Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - DO' started by WWU_Viking, Jul 21, 2006.

  1. So I live in Washington State, with only one medical school (MD). An osteopathic medical school will now be opening:

    Yeah, this school has been in the works for a while now. I live here in Ellensburg (we kill you guys every year in the battle in Seattle!!!) and I would stay away from this school for a couple of years. It was suppose to open this year but they just broke ground on the campus etc. It will have good medical access in Yakima but that's about it. I know the president and he seems driven but it will be a very small school. Go somewhere already established I say.

    Or you could go to Pikeville and do all of your 3rd and 4th year in Yakima.

    Or, if you're from the NW, you can go to COMP and be in the Northwest Track.

    Let me continue my ranting questioning in this thread. It has now been over a week since the December meeting, and still there has been no info provided about how this schools' site review/pre-accreditation went.

    Nothing on the PNUHS or AOA site. Neither have responded to emails.

    Let me continue to beat my dead horse of a question...anyone know anything more regarding the pre-accred. results?
