Abstract

This article describes an experiment to provide decentralized medical education in Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho-four states sharing common problems of health care provision and education of health professionals, including physicians. Evaluation of eight years' experience with the programme shows that the goals are being met. The basic concept of the WAMI programme is applicable to other health disciplines and/or regions with similar geographic, financial, educational and health care challenges.
