About UW Pediatric Residency
Welcome to the University of Washington Pediatric Residency Program
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).
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, among other fields, 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.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in the Pediatric Residency Program
The pediatric residency at the University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Hospital is committed to fostering an inclusive environment that values underrepresented minorities in medicine and individuals with unique experiences. We celebrate people from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, national origin, language, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, physical disability, and other attributes.
