About Us


As the faculty responsible for primary and hospital care in the Dept. of Medicine, we are justifiably proud that the University of Washington has been one of the nation’s top two medical schools for primary care medicine for three decades and the #1 hospital in WA State for 10 years.

We provide medical care to outpatients and hospitalized patients in a wide variety of settings including three academic medical centers, Pioneer Square, several University of Washington Physicians neighborhood clinics, even in patients’ homes and homeless shelters.

In addition to being outstanding clinicians, our faculty provides an impressive amount of clinical teaching to medical students and residents and for which they regularly receive numerous prestigious awards.

Faculty in the division have also achieved national prominence for research on a wide variety of important clinical problems such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, respiratory disease, cancer, diabetes, and many others.
