The first three residents will begin providing patient care this summer as part of the new three-year WSU Family Medicine Residency Program – Pullman.
The three residents selected are Bolu Olawuyi, MD, a graduate of Windsor University School of Medicine from Leduc, Alberta; Jeffrey Ward, a medical student at William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine from Twin Falls, Idaho; and Mohammed Younes, a medical student at Saba University School of Medicine from Edmonton, Alberta.
The residency program, which earned accreditation in May 2021 and began receiving applications for the three residency positions in September 2022, is the college’s first rural residency. Focused at Pullman Regional Hospital, sub-specialty clinics with area physicians, and in the new residency primary care clinic that opened in February 2023, the program will host three residents per year for a total of nine residents when fully implemented.
