The Everett Clinic and Dr. Erica Peavy, Executive Executive Medical Director for Transformation, were featured in the Herald's, "Some WSU medical school doctors will be trained in Everett," which features Washington State Univeristy's plans to teach medical students in Everett through the Elson S. Floyd School of Medicine.

Dr. Erica Peavy, who works at The Everett Clinic and is working with WSU on the partnership, said she's a product and supporter of the UW Medical School. But she said that she became convinced once she saw WSU's research that more could be done.
“I think what I see in the young doctors coming out of training, they really gravitate to Seattle,” Peavy said. “The farther you get away from Seattle the more difficult it is to recruit them.”
WSU North Puget Sound at Everett will provide classroom and office and library space for students and faculty in its under construction academic building in north Everett across from Everett Community College.
