Pacific Northwest University's College of Osteopathic Medicine (PNWU-COM) actively identifies opportunities for development and expansion of graduate medical education (GME) throughout the Pacific Northwest.  The PNWU Office of Graduate Medical Education works with the residency programs in the Pacific Northwest as a resource for ACGME accreditation, osteopathic recognition, faculty development, scholarly activity, OPP workshops and more. PNWU-COM promotes learning and work environments that enhance delivery of patient care services and nurtures faculty and residents. PNWU partners with other academic institutions in the region to collaboratively develop and support regional GME, including the Family Medicine Residency Network.

The Office of Graduate Medical Education also assists students with residency planning in conjunction with the Student Affairs office and Clinical Education Team. Please see our resource and Residency Inquiry page here for more information.

PNWU/FMRN Collaboration

In 2015 Pacific Northwest University and the WWAMI Family Medicine Residency Network (FMRN) formed a collaborative to assist regional family medicine residencies with ACGME osteopathic recognition and support the AOA transitioning programs throughout the single accreditation process. FMRN is a network of 33 family medicine residencies spanning 5 states. The Network is one of the largest residency networks in the United States.

Osteopathic GME and faculty development workshops have been developed through this collaboration. Please visit the FMRN page for event information, times, dates and CME availability: Osteopathic GME Workshops.

Osteopathic Workshops

PNWU offers several Osteopathic workshops for residency faculty, program directors and residents. These workshops are presented at residency sites across the region in an effort to increase awareness and interest in Osteopathic medicine and help programs with osteopathic recognition.
