An important benefit of medical education at the University of Washington is the opportunity to engage in clinical clerkships at sites in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana. In general, the University provides resources supporting housing and travel to and from sites away from Seattle for students on required clerkships.
A site qualifies as an away clerkship if it is more than 35 miles from Seattle. The required clerkships are: Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Surgery, Neurology, Chronic Care and Emergency Medicine. There is no funding to support travel for preceptorships, surgery selectives or elective clerkships.
The travel desk will attempt to contact the student via automatic email six weeks prior to the starting date of the required away clerkship to initiate any necessary travel arrangements; however, students are responsible for contacting the travel desk six weeks prior, whether or not the travel desk contacts the student.
The University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, WA is considered the student's official duty station. All trips originate from this location unless otherwise specified.
Except for students returning to Seattle for a clerkship exam or a required lecture, students will only recieve reimbursement for one round trip to-and-from the required clerkship site.
