State Board: Increase WWAMI seats, look into med school

The state Board of Education met today and voted to back an increase in WWAMI medical school seats for Idaho from 20 to 40, at a rate of increase of 10 a year. WWAMI is a collaboration that allows students from  Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho to attend the University of Washington's medical school (the acronym stands for Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho). The board also voted to "oversee an initiative to engage all stakeholder groups (ISU, UI, BSU, LCSC, University of Washington, VA Medical Center, the hospitals, and the Idaho Medical Association) to jointly develop a collaborative and comprehensive plan for establishment of a 4-year, Idaho-based MD program.”
