Meet Our Interns

We recruit a diverse group of interns every year. Our self-directed learners bring a wide range of experience and interests to the predoctoral internship program, as well as divergent goals for future practice plans.

Our Commitment to Excellence

Interns will be exposed to a variety of health concerns served in primary care, the straightforward to the complex. There is no better place than a community health center to gain experience due to the populations served!

BHCs also serve on the faculty of CWFM’s family medicine residency program. While a minor rotation within the internship, interested and competent interns may have the opportunity to work with family medicine residents and assist in implementing a robust psychosocial medicine curriculum.

We Learn From Our Interns

Where Our Interns Go

We could not be prouder of where our interns go after internship, as well as the impact they continue to have in the field. In fact, since the beginning of our internship, each intern has received and accepted offers to their top fellowship placement. While many of our interns stay on for fellowship (that is our hope), many have gone on to accept positions at prestigious healthcare organizations.

Below are some of the places our interns have gone!

  • Community Health of Central Washington
  • University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center
  • University of Massachusetts Medical School
  • Denver Health
  • Yakima Valley Farm Worker’s Clinic
  • Providence Health & Services
  • University of Chicago
  • Oregon Health Sciences University
  • University of Wisconsin Medical School
