Faculty Development Programs

The UW Family Medicine Residency Network exists to promote excellence in family medicine residency education, to provide academic leadership, and to respond to societal needs.

Fellows gather for five full weeks throughout the academic year in-person at the University of Washington Seattle campus.

Certificate Program

Offered in collaboration with the Faculty Development Fellows at the Madigan Army Medical Center. Participants gather in-person for two days in the spring and fall and meet monthly via telesessions.

All participants of the Fellowship and Certificate Program are required to have an active Clinical Faculty Appointment with the UW Department of Family Medicine. For more information on Clinical Faculty Appointments, visit our Department website.

About the Fellowship

We believe fellowship training is critical to the evolution of family medicine. Our Faculty Development Fellowship program is designed to prepare family physicians for full-time teaching careers in family medicine. The Fellowship provides the resources, experiences and guidance fellows need to assume demanding roles in academic medicine. In turn, we look to the faculty fellows as a source of innovation and renewal within our Family Medicine Residency Network.

The fellows from our affiliated programs are admitted each year and spend five full weeks at the University of Washington Seattle campus throughout the academic year, while serving as a faculty member at their home program.

How to Apply

At this time, we are only accepting applications from affiliated programs. Faculty are nominated to apply by their program director. Speak to your PD if you are interested or contact the FMRN Education team.

Network and Madigan Faculty Development Certificate Program

The Faculty Development Certificate Program is a year-long program in which a cohort of 11 individuals participate together with the WWAMI Network and Madigan Army Medical Center.

There are two in-person faculty development sessions: one at the beginning in May to launch the program, and one at the midpoint.

The remaining faculty development sessions are live webinars, prior to which participants complete prework.  Each webinar combines both lecture and interactive formats, and at times includes the use of small-group breakouts within the webinar session.

In addition, the participants create an Individual Faculty Development Plan for the year.  Based on this plan our faculty and staff provide guidance and direct participants to relevant Network resources.
