Students throughout WWAMI join one another in Seattle for the second year's courses. Classes begin in September and end in June. Students will have opportunities to meet with WWAMI Clinical Coordinators from the region to discover what third-year opportunities are available. Students interested in being an Idaho Tracker will sign up through the Registrar's Office in winter. Students most interested in primary care as a career, and possibly in a rural setting, should consider applying to the WRITE program. Applicants are interviewed in the fall semester. Students must take and pass Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensure Examination (USMLE), an assessment of students' understanding and application of important concepts and the basic sciences.
