MEDEX Northwest PA Program
MEDEX Northwest, established in 1969, is proud of its long-standing mission to train healthcare providers who will practice primary care in medically underserved and rural areas of the UW School of Medicine’s service region. MEDEX offers a competency-based training program that accepts applicants with previous health-care experience (such as nursing, EMTs, Alaska community health aides, medical assistants, athletic training, former military corpsmen, etc.). Four classroom sites serve students from a wide geographic range, and clinical training takes place throughout the WWAMI region and beyond. The very diverse MEDEX students fulfill the program’s mission to improve access to primary health care as well as developing new professional roles for PAs.
We have a very large website, and two Facebook pages, listed below:
