Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine accepted 138 medical students to the class of 2017. Last week, students attended orientation and took a Hippocratic Oath and tried on their white doctor’s coats for the first time.

Among the new medical students is Buckley area resident Cullen Owen.

Owen graduated from White River High School in 2007 and from Washington State University in May 2012.

It is PNWU’s mission to educate and train healthcare professionals who will provide care throughout the Pacific Northwest, particularly rural and medically underserved communities.

PNWU students are selected on the basis of academic excellence, commitment to primary care, commitment to practice medicine in an underserved area, personal characteristics and ties to a Pacific Northwest community.
