WSU president upset about enrollment
Spokane will have a four-year medical program with or without the help of the University of Washington.
That's according to Washington State University president Elson Floyd.
The Spokesman-Review reports that Floyd is disappointed that fewer second-year medical students are enrolled at WSU's budding Spokane campus than expected. He blames UW for failing to recruit more students.
WSU Spokane houses a branch of UW's WWAMI program, which provides doctor training for Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho.
WSU had expected to host 20 second-year students this year, but Floyd says UW decided only 17 students could attend WSU Spokane.
