Founded in 1969, MEDEX Northwest has graduated over 2,820 physician assistants as of 2020. A survey conducted in 2010 indicates that over 43% of our graduates are practicing in primary care, higher than the national average. Over 70% of our graduates have stayed in the northwest service region of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI). Of our WWAMI graduates, around 35% have told us that they are working in a rural or medically underserved setting. The vast majority of MEDEX graduates are highly satisfied with their PA careers.
