Our faculty bring together a wide diversity of expertise from health care reform to clinical education to specialized areas within primary care. Residents will learn under an apprentice-like model, with a focus on direct one-to-one learning.
Every Family Medicine Residency faculty member, both physicians and behavioral scientists, have an appointment on the clinical faculty at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and all physicians on the faculty are board-certified in family medicine. Each resident is assigned an advisor from among the faculty physicians for the three years of their residency.
Each of the faculty physicians maintains a busy family medicine clinical practice, most of them at half-time or greater. This commitment to family medicine provides us with faculty who are acutely aware of current issues in clinical medicine and practice management. This sets our program's precedent to produce strong clinicians.
The core faculty consists of family physicians and behavior scientists.
