What is a resident physician?

Resident physicians are doctors who have graduated from medical school and are in the process of completing his or her specialty training, leading to Board Certification. Residents care for patients under the guidance and supervision of a UW faculty physician.

Why should you see a resident physician?

  • They have and continue to receive leading-edge medical training and information
  • They can typically see you on short notice
  • They work closely with other care team members to ensure that your healthcare needs are addressed in a timely manner.
  • Two physicians will be involved with your visit; the resident doctor and the faculty physician.

U.S. News & World Reports released its 2015 rankings for top medical schools and the UW School of Medicine is ranked No. 1 in primary care training.
