New for 2019. We now offer TWO positions through the NRMP match: one designated for family or internal medicine candidates, and the second designated for pediatric candidates.

The University of Washington participates in the ERAS system for application submission and in the NRMP Primary Care Sports Medicine Matching Program. Our program considers applicants who have trained in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, or Pediatric residencies. Our applicant review committee considers qualified applicants who complete the application process as outlined by ERAS, and applications are only reviewed once all materials have been submitted through ERAS. Personal interviews are required and application deadlines strictly adhered to.
