What really stood out to me about UW is how balanced the program is overall. Clinical duties are structured to maximize learning, team work, and patient-centered care. Research projects with Kidney Research Institute are accessible and clinically relevant. There is a focus on diversity, and an opportunity to care for Seattle's growing underserved communities. Faculty are excellent clinicians and teachers, and invested in the fellows as individuals. Overall fellows just seemed happy and well supported!
