Spotlight on Resident Scholarship highlights research, quality improvement, medical education, advocacy, and other scholarly activities of UW Internal Medicine residents.
Senior Scholarship Day
The residency program hosts an annual May-June event to showcase graduating seniors' scholarships in the area of research, QI, and medical education. The event includes oral and poster presentations. The audience chooses recipients for three awards: Impact, Innovation, and Presentation Style.
Research Mentor Award
To recognize the dedication and expertise of our mentors, the University of Washington Internal Medicine Residency Program gives one Research Mentor Award annually. Residency program leaders select the recipient from among resident-nominated candidates.
The IM Residency Program recognizes and values excellent mentorship, which is central to the success of resident scholarship. These model mentors help residents identify and achieve personal goals by investing effort that fosters productivity and career advancement.
