WWAMI Medical Education Program

The University of Wyoming participates in WWAMI, a regional medical education program with the University of Washington School of Medicine. The program annually reserves seats for up to twenty qualified Wyoming residents. Participants complete the first year of medical school in Laramie at the University of Wyoming and the second year in Seattle at the University of Washington.

The third and fourth years are spent in clinical sites throughout the WWAMI region (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho).

Applicants or their parents must be legal residents for five continuous years immediately prior to attending medical school. Participants make a contract payment to the University of Wyoming for the four years of medical school and the state pays the educational costs to the University of Washington for each student.

WWAMI is the primary means of access for allopathic medical education in Wyoming. Applicants are encouraged to apply to the WWAMI program to study allopathic medicine and to the WICHE PSEP program for both allopathic and osteopathic medicine. Learn more
