The UW Family Medicine Residency Network exists to promote excellence in family medicine residency education, to provide academic leadership, and to respond to societal needs. The quality of the individual programs is high. This is reflected in the number and quality of applicants and residents, as well as in the excellence of the faculty.

Fellowship & Certificate Programs

The Department of Family Medicine and its affiliated Residency Network at the University of Washington believe that fellowship training is critical to the evolution of family medicine. The current Faculty Development Fellowship program is designed to prepare family physicians for full-time teaching careers in medical schools and family practice residencies. 12 fellows are admitted each year and spend five full weeks at the University of Washington Seattle campus. Each fellow spends one year in the Fellowship, functioning as a faculty member in one of the affiliated residency programs. Fellows’ activities include supervised student and resident teaching, individual projects under faculty mentorship, and clinical care in a continuity family practice at their home residency program. This experiential base is enriched by 25 days of intensive instruction at the University of Washington. The goal of our program is to graduate fellows who will develop a successful career as full-time teachers in family medicine. The Fellowship provides the resources, experiences and guidance fellows need to assume demanding roles in academic medicine. In turn, we look to the faculty fellows as a source of innovation and renewal within our Family Medicine Residency Network.

Network and Madigan Faculty Development Certificate Program

The Faculty Development Certificate Program is a yearlong program in which a cohort of 11 individuals participate together with the WWAMI Network and Madigan Army Medical Center. There are two in-person faculty development sessions, one at the beginning to launch the program, and one at the midpoint.  The remainder faculty development sessions are live webinars, prior to which participants complete prework.  Each webinar combines both lecture and interactive formats, and at times includes the use of small-group breakouts within the webinar session.  In addition, the participants create an Individual Faculty Development Plan for the year.  Based on this plan our faculty and staff provide guidance and direct participants to relevant Network resources.

Madigan

Simulation Training at Madigan Military Hospital’s Andersen Simulation Center

Simulation Training at Madigan Military Hospital’s Andersen Simulation Center
These sessions, held at Madigan Military Hospital’s Andersen Simulation Center, focus on learning how to use medical simulators to teach residents and medical students various procedures, depending on the “theme” of the sessions. FMRN faculty will also learn how to use simulators to teach residents and students how to function as members of a team providing coordinated care in emergency situations. Themes will usually be one of the following: OB, trauma, adult life support, pediatric life support, or miscellaneous procedures (e.g. vasectomy, LP, joint injection). One faculty person per Network program per year may attend. If space permits, programs may send more than one faculty person.

PNWU

PNWU/FMRN Collaboration

In 2015 Pacific Northwest University (PNWU) and WWAMI Family Medicine Residency Network (FMRN) formed a collaborative team to assist residencies within the Network with ACGME osteopathic recognition and support the AOA residency programs with the single accreditation process. The Osteopathic Faculty Development workshops listed below are a direct result of this collaboration.

Osteopathic Workshops

Osteopathic Principles & Practice Introductory Workshop (On-demand)

Osteopathic Principles & Practice (OPP) workshops are now available to your program through Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences. They are a direct result of the collaboration between FMRN and PNWU to support residencies and associated institutions with Osteopathic Recognition and the unified accreditation movement. The workshops are interactive, hands-on educational activities that incorporate kinesthetic learning, lecture, and small group work at OMM tables. Participants experience an enriched learning environment focused on OPP modalities: soft tissue; myofascial release; lymphatics; counterstrain; muscle energy; high velocity, low amplitude. The workshops are designed to foster osteopathic-focused learning environments in residency training programs. They are aimed at residency program directors, faculty and osteopathic preceptors so that they may develop individual skills in OPP modalities and improve competencies as educators who supervise residents who perform OPP in patient care settings. These hands-on workshops can be brought to your program site and are eligible for AMA and AOA CME.

 

  • Osteopathic Principles and Practice Introductory Workshop
    The initial 4 hour, hands on workshop that discusses the history and philosophy of osteopathic principles and teaches basic introduction to the six primary osteopathic techniques.
  • Management of Low Back Pain using OMT
    3 hour workshop on lower back pain evaluation, identifying somatic dysfunction and performing direct and indirect osteopathic techniques to treat low back pain.
  • Treatment of Headaches, Neck Pain and TMJ using OMT
    3 hour workshop that evaluates and identifies the source of the pain and teaches various osteopathic treatment techniques to treat the different sources of pain.
  • OMT in Prenatal Care
    3 hour workshop that identifies somatic dysfunction associated with pregnancy and introduces osteopathic techniques used to alleviate those complaints.

Other Events

NWHFC Project ECHO: Heart Failure Case Conference Series

The video conferences are led by an interdisciplinary team of heart failure experts, involving 15 minutes of CME accredited educational presentations, and 45 minutes of audience-­‐submitted heart failure case presentations and interactive discussions/consultations are organized to improve the care of patients with heart failure, and expand the experience and knowledge base of the providers who care for them. Community providers (MD/DO, ARNP/PA, RN, PharmD, Social Work and Allied Health Professionals) who treat patients with a diagnosis of heart failure are invited to join these conferences (there is no fee), scheduled for the first and third Wednesdays at noon Pacific Time, and can present their own cases or participate in the discussion of cases from other sites.
