The practice of medicine is constantly changing in response to shifting demographics, advances in biomedical science, and demands to manage the cost and quality of medical care. The University of Washington curriculum ensures that students gain a solid foundation of medical, professional, ethical, and communication skills. It promotes above all the dignity of the patient and respect for the sanctity of the patient/physician relationship.
