Faculty Visitors “FV” & Case Presentations
Faculty Visit Setup Process
Each WRITE site will host a minimum of two faculty from the University of Washington School of Medicine from the Departments of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry or other specialty during February-May of the WRITE rotation.
In November, each UWSOM clerkship department is contacted by the WRITE Co-Chair’s Office requesting visitors for specific sites.
By December 15th, a list of faculty visitors for the specific departments will be returned to the WRITE Co-Chair’s Office.
Beginning in January, the WWAMI Regional Offices will contact the faculty visitors and the WRITE sites to begin the process of arranging the site visits. The WWAMI Regional Dean and Assistant will be available to assist in the process of making this visit.
By the start of the WRITE program, the dates for the site visits will be complete.
Travel arrangements will be coordinated through the UWSOM clerkship departments and the WWAMI Regional Office.
Scheduled faculty visits should not be changed or canceled by the student; however, if a visit is in question, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the WWAMI Regional Office to discuss the situation. Arbitrary changes create time-consuming havoc in the schedule. If the faculty visit has to be canceled due to weather or illness, attempts will be made to reschedule as soon as possible.
