Physician Liaison Program

The Physician Liaison Program at UW Medical Center establishes and promotes positive relationships between UW Medical Center, referring physicians and their staff.

Our physician liaisons serve as a personal contact for referring physicians and other healthcare professionals to address questions, issues or concerns. Information shared with our physician liaisons is important to UW Medical Center physicians and administrators, and is used for planning and evaluating services and programs.
