  • Washington State University Health Sciences Spokane (WSU Spokane) is a campus of Washington State University, a land-grant research university founded in Pullman, Washington in 1890. WSU Spokane is the designated health sciences campus for Washington State University and is located on 48 acres on the edge of downtown Spokane, Washington. WSU Spokane offers programs in Medical Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Nursing, Health Policy and Administration, Speech and Hearing Sciences, Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, Education and Criminal Justice. Research occurs in the areas of sleep and performance, cancer, mental health, molecular biosciences, and substance abuse. Led by growth in the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, enrollment on the WSU Spokane campus was 1,677 students in the fall of 2018, a 3.8 percent increase from the previous year. There are undergraduate, graduate and professional students on the campus. The university employed 646 faculty and staff on the WSU Spokane campus in spring 2018. WSU Spokane shares a campus, previously called the Riverpoint Campus, with Eastern Washington University. Located in Spokane's University District, the campus once was a rail yard. Then-Gov. Booth Gardner signed legislation in 1989 that established branch campuses in Spokane and elsewhere, and in 2010 WSU's Board of Regents designated WSU Spokane as the university's health sciences campus. In recent years WSU Spokane has expanded significantly. Thanks to intense community support, legislative funding to build a new facility for the pharmacy and medical sciences programs was approved, and private funding of second year medical education was secured. These actions prompted the College of Pharmacy to move in its entirety to the Spokane campus in 2013 and the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine to be created in 2014. Another recent effort was the establishment of a consortium of Empire Health Foundation, Providence Health Care and WSU Spokane that successfully applied for federal teaching health center funding for six new medical residency slots, with the possibility of another 12 or more if funding is continued. The effort moved responsibility of nearly all of the medical residences in Eastern Washington to the consortium's Spokane Teaching Health Center. A clinic for the residents and WSU students working in teams to serve low-income community members was finished in early 2016. (en)
