National Research Service Award (NRSA) Family Medicine Research Fellowship

The University of Washington Department of Family Medicine offers a two-year NRSA Research Fellowship. The program is an opportunity for graduating residents or family physicians with practice experience to gain formal research training in preparation for an academic career.

The NRSA Primary Care Medicine Fellowship program is offered jointly by Family Medicine, General Internal Medicine, and Primary Care Pediatrics at the University of Washington in Seattle. The fellowship provides training in research methods, experience working with an established investigators, and mentorship for career success. This is an established program in an exciting environment, rich in resources and strong on family medicine. The 2-year program usually includes an MPH degree in Epidemiology or Health Services from the UW School of Public Health and Community Medicine, but it can fit with other graduate study programs.

The program pays tuition and a stipend based on years of training and experience. If the Fellow finishes the 2-year program, there is no service commitment. Fellows must be BE-BC and US citizens or permanent residents. We encourage minority applicants.

We admit one family medicine fellow each year to this interdisciplinary program. The program includes a first and second year fellow from each or the three specialties for a total of six fellows.

The application deadline is October 1 for fellowship to start on July 1 of the following year.
