The University of Washington (UW) Tobacco Studies Program (TSP), now in its thirteenth year, provides health sciences students and current health professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand and address the national and global tobacco epidemic. The UW TSP strives to remain accessible to current and future allied health professionals alike, creating opportunities that promote collaboration and foster integrated tobacco cessation and prevention efforts across multiple disciplines and settings.

The program is housed within the Department of Health Services, School of Public Health (SPH) and associated with the Departments of Family Medicine and Global Health, in the UW School of Medicine. The UW TSP is currently funded by a gift from the James and Gayle Halperin Foundation, providing an integrated, multi-disciplinary training and scholarship program focused on the prevention and treatment of tobacco use and related diseases.
