The board of regents for Washington State University recently approved a plan to start a new medical school in Spokane, despite opposition from regents at the University of Washington, to open a second medical school in the state.
 
According to a consultant’s report, $1-3 million in states fund would be needed annually for the next few years to get the school started. Funding needs would gradually increase and may eventually reach $47 million by the 2024-25 academic year.
 
The University of Washington, which runs the state’s only publically funded medical school, has been critical of the plan and questioned whether opening a second medical school is the best use of limited resources.
