AP/Seattle Post-Intelligencer, August 29, 2008
Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences has laid out plans for two more colleges, intending to ease shortages of additional healthcare professionals in its surrounding region. The board of directors voted to open two additional colleges, possibly as early as next fall: the College of Allied Health Sciences and the College of Biomedical Sciences. Seventy percent of the college's enrolled students are from the Pacific Northwest, and the college has agreements with hospitals, clinics, and doctors in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana to provide clinical training to students in their third and fourth years.
