WWAMI Mentoring Program

posted May 5, 2014, 9:51 AM by Everett Holm
We had 6 students participate in the WWAMI mentoring program through MSU-Bozeman.

Our students participated in weekly video chats and collaborated with the medical mentoring students on a medical issue project which they presented to their mentors in class. It was a great learning experience for our students!! Melanie Magee Gear-Up/Sunshine Gaither Gear-Up, "We are so proud of our students!!!” - the students who participated: Joe Tailfeathers, Dani Antelope, Aidan Higgins, Treyanna Belcourt and Brittney Racine.

FYI: WWAMI is a cooperative program of the University of Washington School of Medicine and the states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. (The first letter of each state is where WWAMI gets its name.) It gives students residing in the Northwestern United States access to high-quality, cost-effective medical education by decentralizing the educational process and sharing existing facilities and personnel in universities and communities in the WWAMI states.
