Many valley residents still are not aware that a full fledged medical school has its home right here in Yakima. Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences graduated its first class of Osteopathic Physicians last spring.

Dr. Keith Watson, PNWU president was a guest on Wednesday's Mike Bastinelli show. He was joined by Steve Pinther, PNWU student government president.

Topics discussed included the school's beginnings and current expansion plans, life for students in the Yakima area, and what awaits PNWU students when they graduate.
