Graduates' Post-Residency Careers

Our graduates have enjoyed great success in obtaining outstanding post-residency positions across the country. 

Our overall, long-term fellowship match rate is 97 percent and over 75 percent of our graduates match into their top fellowship choice. For graduates interested in a research career, we also have several training grants that offer protected years for graduate studies and NIH-funded clinical and basic science scholarly experiences.

We also offer three traditional and one primary care fourth-year chief resident positions, which provide extensive opportunities for teaching, research, clinical and administrative experiences. In addition, we offer a VA primary care chief resident position and a VA chief resident position for quality improvement. 

Many graduates go into general medicine or hospitalist practice and find positions in their first choice of community and practice. We are also proud to have appointed many graduates as faculty members in the Department of Medicine here at UW.
