Health care professionals work to make us healthier
Last updated 11/30/2023 at 1:28pm
Physicians and health-care workers across the state have experienced unprecedented stress and hardship over the past several years. Despite this, physicians in Davenport and Odessa took and continue to take the time to help train medical students.
We are thankful to the extensive network of physicians throughout Eastern and Central Washington who believe in “paying it forward,” because of the training they received from preceptors and mentors when they were medical students. We’ve learned that despite added layers of complexity, these physicians persevere and understand that a challenging situation is a unique opportunity for medical students to learn – this rang true when we were in a hopefully once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.
As Health Partners with Gonzaga University, we are grateful for each patient, physician, nurse, physician assistant, medical assistant and healthcare professional who contribute to our students’ medical education. Because of you, we can deliver top-ranked medical education to train the next generation of excellent physicians for Davenport, Odessa and beyond.
Together, we are working to make our region healthier.
