Core Values in Action

​​​​UW Medicine is committed to improving the health of the public through collaborative efforts in patient care, research, and education. We value respect, ​excellence, integrity, compassion, altruism, and accountability in all our work interactions and responsibilities. The Continuous Professionalism Improvement (CPI)​ Committee was created to promote and celebrate our core professional values throughout UW Medicine.

UW Medicine values professionalism among our faculty, staff, residents, fellows, and students in carrying out our mission of improving the health of the public. Professionalism includes demonstrating excellence, respect, integrity, compassion, altruism, and accountability in all endeavors. Diversity of ideas, perspectives and experiences is integral to our mission. All individuals across the UW Medicine community are responsible for creating a respectful and welcoming environment where every person is valued and honored.
