Why the UW for family medicine?
Our family medicine residency is located in the beautiful city of Seattle, and is the only academic medical center in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho. Excellence in education and an emphasis on quality patient care are hallmarks of training at the UW. Our residents train in a variety of practice settings, including rural community practice, urban underserved practice and tertiary academic medical centers. Whether leading a medicine team at one of Seattle’s major hospitals or caring for patients at a community practice site in Alaska or Montana, our residents are on the cutting edge of training in family medicine. We encourage you to not only apply to our residency, but to this unique opportunity to experience resident life in Seattle with us.
