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.
To support our programs, we offer two, year-long faculty development training opportunities.
Comparison: Fellowship vs Hybrid Course
Fellows gather for five full weeks throughout the academic year in-person at the University of Washington Seattle campus.
Offered in collaboration with the Faculty Development Fellows at the Madigan Army Medical Center. Participants gather in-person in the Seattle/Tacoma area for two days in the spring and fall and also participate in two 2-day virtual sessions via Zoom in the summer and winter.
Clinical Faculty Appointments
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.
