Our members enjoyed this year’s presentation: Starting a New Medical School: Developing Future Scholars in the Workplace, Dean John Tomkowiak, WSU Elson S Floyd College of Medicine.The Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine was created to address physician shortages in communities across the state. It attracts talented students from rural and underserved communities. These students train within their communities, increasing the likelihood that they will remain there to practice medicine.
