Researchers at the UW School of Medicine explore every aspect of health and disease, from the molecular mechanisms of gene action to population studies of global illnesses. The UW School of Medicine offers several academic graduate degree programs through its departments. These graduate programs are a critical part of our commitment to research and discovery, and to the training of the next generation of scientists and innovators.

Graduates of the UW School of Medicine's biomedical degree programs - educators, scientists, allied health personnel, or scholars in medical history and ethics - go on to serve in a wide variety of capacities. Interdisciplinary collaboration is a hallmark of the UW School of Medicine that graduates take with them. Scientists, educators and clinicians are dedicated to helping each other reach the common goals of improving people's health and alleviating suffering from disease.

The UW School of Medicine provides a Biomedical Research Integrity (BRI) program series to support the responsible conduct of research training and instruction requirement for various federal training grants and fellowships.

Several resources are available to support the clinical training and development of UW Medicine researchers.​
