We are deeply dedicated to our missions of teaching, healing, discovery and diversity. 

Teaching

Future physicians and scientists have opportunities to train in a broad range of settings with a diverse patient population and some of the best minds in academic medicine as role models.

Our faculty members teach the latest in evidence-based practice as well as the oldest of human values—compassion and respect for patients and their families.

Our residencies and fellowships are considered among the best programs in the country.

Healing

Our clinical programs are diverse, offering considerable breadth and depth of expertise in care. Our programs strive to achieve integration with research and training, thus accelerating the transfer and dissemination of new knowledge. 

Faculty members in our subspecialites provide outstanding specialized care, as well as advancing the horizons of care innovations. Through such specialized facilities as the Heart Institute, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, the Northwest Kidney Centers, and others, our physicians make their expertise accessible to patients from around the region, the nation, and the world.

Discovery

From making kidney dialysis possible to winning the Nobel Prize for bone-marrow transplantation, we have a long tradition of leading-edge research that has yielded some of the most important innovations in the history of modern medicine.

Diversity

We are committed to increasing the recruitment, retention and advancement of faculty, fellows and residents from groups underrepresented in medicine and promoting an inclusive environment accross the department.
