Welcome to the Department of Medicine website. We invite you to learn more about our outstanding educational, patient care, and research programs in these pages. We are committed to excellence in all three of these missions, and we are proud of our achievements. This is the largest department in the University of Washington School of Medicine, with 14 divisions and more than 1000 full-time and over 1,200 voluntary clinical faculty members. Our faculty provide the highest quality of primary and subspecialty care for patients throughout the region.
