Diversity Training

Information of Interest to Minority Applicants

We strive to have classes that vary in terms of geography, age, socioeconomic background, gender, and race/ethnicity. The training faculty have diverse interests, personal, and professional backgrounds. The program facilitates supportive, collegial connections between psychology residents and faculty. In the larger University and School of Medicine community, there are a number of resources and events specifically for minority students. (See Office of Multicultural Affairs - School of Medicine) (See Diversity Advancement Committee)

The ethnic distribution of the population of Seattle, the University of Washington community and the participating medical centers of the internship are shown in the chart below. The population served by these medical centers encompasses adults, and children with a broad range of psychological and medical problems and drawn from a diverse array of ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Seattle is a community known to be welcoming of other forms of diversity including a large and active gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered community.

Internship training faculty would be pleased to speak with applicants further about any particular resources or aspects of the Seattle community that are of interest.
