Expand, don’t dilute, UW medical school

It was a revolutionary concept in 1971 when the University of Washington School of Medicine pioneered the nation’s first collaborative medical school with the University of Alaska and Washington State University. The goal was to expand UW’s world-class medical school to train new doctors in hospitals and clinics located throughout the two states. It has achieved those goals at about a third of the national average in cost per student. Shouldn’t the program be expanded, rather than diluted?
