Family Medicine of Spokane
Family Medicine Spokane (FMS) is a fully accredited Family Medicine residency program affiliated with the University of Washington School of Medicine.

University of Washington School of Medicine
Third year medical students from the University of Washington receive family medicine training in Spokane as part of the five state WWAMI medical education program. While spending a day at Pearson and Weary Chiropractic, students learn first hand how family medicine and chiropractic specialities work together to improve our patient's health, and receive instruction in basic examination procedures that allow them to diagnose some conditions that commonly respond to chiropractic care. One of the goals of the student's family medicine training is to see how specialties work together to meet our patients needs for management of chronic conditions, as well as for promoting healthy lifestyles. The close collaboration between the doctors at Pearson and Weary Chiropractic Clinic and the patient's family physician shows the students a "real life view" of how to provide excellent integrative care and help our mutual patients become active again.
