Students and applicants
Residency application information
For the best consideration, submit a complete application via ERAS at the time applications open in October. Our recruitment committee meets within a week, reviews all applications and extends interviews within 2 weeks following the ERAS opening date.
All of the following are requirements for your application to be reviewed:
- Anticipated graduate from a U.S. Allopathic or Osteopathic Medical School (we do not review International Medical Graduates due to limited faculty resources)
- Have passed USMLE Step 1 or COMLEX-USA Level 1 examination
Medical student rotations
Our program is a teaching site for the University of Washington, hosting seven third-year clerkship students and two fourth-year sub-interns each year. Consequently, our ability to host for-credit rotations for visiting students is very limited. Also, striving to make the application process as equitable as possible, the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho) network of family medicine residencies has decided that no programs (with exception of rural track programs) should be offering tours of the clinic or residency for the 2021 match. The concern with doing so would be that those applicants with more limited resources would be at a disadvantage in the match process. Please feel free to email us with questions regarding our program.
URiM Visiting Student Program
The Kaiser Permanente Family Medicine Residency RPrIDE (Residency Promoting Inclusion Diversity and Equity) Group is committed to undoing racism and improving the health of our community by addressing race discordance between family physicians and their patients. The RPrIDE Visiting Student sub-internship is designed to give medical students from an Underrepresented Minority (URM) background the opportunity to further develop their skills in Family Medicine and experience training at Kaiser Permanente Washington Family Medicine Residency. Students will spend four weeks at Kaiser Permanente in Seattle in a variety of settings including inpatient, outpatient and community settings. Students will receive mentorship provided by RPrIDE faculty and be matched with a resident during their time. Up to three students per year will be selected and will receive up to $3000 funding towards travel and living expenses.
