Didactics

Required Lectures for Seattle Area Sites

Students completing their clerkship in the Seattle-area (UW/HMC, Group Health Central/Eastside/Tacoma, Valley, Swedish, Northwest Hospital, and Tacoma) are REQUIRED to attend weekly didactic sessions at the University of Washington every Wednesday. This lecture schedule is given to students at the Seattle Clerkship Orientation on the first day of the rotation. Students not in attendance will have a written professionalism issue noted in their final evaluation. Students post-call are excused from didactics only if they have notified the Clerkship Director and Coordinator before the didactics begin that day.
