"Sollus Northwest offers a great opportunity to work in both small and large hospitals in the Yakima Valley. Working with the different hospital and clinic systems really has helped me better define what type of practice I will look to be a part of after graduation.  The residency is also fairly new, allowing for greater flexibility in enhancing your residency training. Although the residency program is new, Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic is well-established network of care with many potential post-residency job opportunities in Washington and Oregon."
