UW Family Medicine Department Fair & Scholarship Forum

15th Annual Family Medicine Department Fair & Scholarship Forum



UW Seattle Campus HUB 211, South Ballroom

What is the Department Fair & Scholarship Forum? 

The fair was started in 2009 by our then Chief Resident, Dr. Kavitha Chunchu, as a way to showcase the research and scholarly work of the Family Medicine residents and medical students.  It has evolved into a Department-wide, yearly celebration of Family Medicine scholarly pursuits and activities, and a forum to showcase accomplishments and recognition of our team’s hard work and talents.
