Pullman is home to Washington State University and is the economic center of the Palouse region of southeast Washington. The community is home to 35,000 residents and is surrounded by miles of agricultural lands and small, friendly communities.
Pullman may be a smaller town, but it serves as the HQ for international tech leader, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, a world-leader in protecting, monitoring and controlling electric power systems. Their company’s 2,300 local employees and the nearby influence of the University of Idaho in Moscow, brings an intellectual energy to the area, enhancing that fostered by nearly 30,000 Washington State University students.
In 2011, Bloomberg BusinessWeek selected Pullman as the “Best Place to Raise Kids” in Washington, due to the area’s affordability, safety, lifestyle, school quality and its natural environment. When Family Medicine residents want a taste of bigger city life, Spokane is an easy getaway, only 80 minutes to the north.
Pullman and Washington State University is home to the Eldon S. Floyd College of Medicine, a community-based medical school. The college was created to expand medical education and health care access in communities across Washington state.
Pullman is also home for Pullman Regional Hospital, whose 400 physicians and staff provide a wide array of treatment and prevention designed to provide the most comprehensive benefits to patients. The hospital features four state-of-the-art operating rooms, daVinci robotic-assisted surgical technology, a full digital imaging center, 24-hour access to stroke neurologists through Telestroke technology, 24-hour emergency medicine care, full-service OB care which received the Women’s Choice Award in Obsetrics in 2019, and many more services, all in a warm, inviting environment with private patient rooms.
The Inland Northwest’s diverse environments span from mountains to deserts, rivers and lakes to urban centers and rolling farmlands. Spokane Teaching Health places Family Medicine residents at the heart of it all.
