Dr. John Tomkowiak, inaugural Dean of the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, was interviewed on Inside Olympia this week to discuss the development of the state’s second publicly funded medical school. The dean spoke with TVW about the selection process the college is using to find the right 60 students from among the 700 applications the college received and how the University plans to address the shortage of doctors in rural and underserved urban areas of Washington.
