About Our College

The Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences opened in 2005, after planning and fundraising to open a new osteopathic medical school in Washington State.[5] In 2007, PNWU received provisional accreditation. In 2008, the first courses began, and the university's main building, Butler-Haney Hall, opened at a cost of $13 million.[6] In 2009, the university received a $400,000 federal grant to expand the College of Allied Health Sciences.[7] In 2012, the inaugural class of 69 students graduated, earning the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree.[8][9]
