Despite its small core faculty, Pullman Regional Hospital's Family Medicine Residency Center is mighty in its community. The center recently opened to much celebration, and is staffed by two local family medicine providers. A partnership between Pullman Regional Hospital and Washington State University’s Elton S. Floyd College of Medicine, the program provides medical school graduates with their last three years of training before they receive a license to practice medicine.
The center was funded entirely through philanthropy and offers 14 exam rooms, lab spaces, a meeting area, two procedure rooms, and office space for attending physicians. Drs. Drue Webb and Molly Thompson will provide oversight, teach residents, and treat patients. Future residents will receive mentorship from attendings, as well as guidance from the hospital's specialty staff. On March 17, the hospital will know who their three incoming physician residents are. CEO Matt Forge expressed excitement at the prospect of welcoming residents to the team of established providers.
