MEDEX Physician Assistant Program

MEDEX Northwest, established in 1969, is proud of its long-standing mission to train healthcare providers who will practice primary care in medically underserved and rural areas of the UW School of Medicine’s service region. MEDEX offers a competency-based training program that accepts applicants with previous healthcare experience, such as nurses (at any level), EMTs, Alaska community health aides, medical assistants, athletic trainers, former military corpsmen, etc.  Four classroom sites serve students from a wide geographic range, and clinical training takes place throughout the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho regions and beyond. The very diverse MEDEX students fulfill the program’s mission to improve access to primary health care as well as developing new professional roles for PAs.
