Legislation that would add the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine to the Family Medicine Residency Network passed unanimously out of the House Health Care & Wellness Committee this morning. You can view video of the committee action below and check out our previous coverage of the measure here.

House Bill 2443 would include WSU as a third co-chair to the Family Medicine Residency Advisory Board, joining current co-chairs the University of Washington and the Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences. Both institutions supported WSU’s proposal during public hearing last week. The bill now goes to the House Rules Committee for consideration to receive a vote on the House floor.

It’s companion legislation, Senate Bill 6093, is scheduled for public hearing next week in the Senate Higher Education & Workforce Development Committee.
