Welcome to the University of Washington Pediatric Residency Program

John Hawes mountains  

Our program is based at Seattle Children's Hospital, the major pediatric referral center in a five-state region: Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho ( WWAMI ).

In addition to rotations at Seattle Children's, residents rotate through a rich network of outstanding teaching hospitals and community clinics that serve a diverse group of children and families.

More than 225 academic faculty and 350 clinical faculty teach medical students, house officers, research fellows, practicing physicians and allied health professionals.

Research within the department encompasses the spectrum of human development and pediatric disease, ranging from molecular and cellular biology to injury prevention and community health.

By tailoring training opportunities to each individual resident's needs, we provide our residents with the opportunity to maximize their options for career direction, whether in general practice, subspecialties, research, advocacy or international health.

Fellows in multiple specialties are an important part of our educational model, providing excellent teaching opportunities without compromising resident autonomy. Seattle Children's is home to fellowships in adolescent medicine, allergy and immunology, bioethics, cardiology, craniofacial medicine, critical care, developmental pediatrics, emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general academic pediatrics, hematology/oncology, infectious diseases, neonatology, nephrology, neurology, pulmonology and radiology.  Learn more about fellowship opportunities .
