Residency Program: Application Checklist
We are excited about the AY21 recruitment season, and in the interest of keeping our community and others safe and healthy, we have made the decision to hold all interviews virtually. This is in line with The University of Washington’s guidance and the recommendations from the Coalition for Physician Accountability.
A welcome to our prospective residents from Dr. Byron Joyner, Vice Dean for GME and DIO
This year, we hosted a number of Virtual Open House events to give prospective applicants a chance to meet our Program Directors, faculty & trainees. If you weren’t able to attend, we invite you to view the slides from our presentation and a recording from one of our events.

The University of Washington participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). We only accept applications submitted through ERAS and registered for the NRMP Match. We look for candidates with excellent academic performance and a strong interest in pursuing pathology as the next step in their career.
The UW School of Medicine accepts international medical graduates who meet UW Eligibility and Selection requirements into its accredited residency and fellowship programs. International Medical Graduates requiring visa sponsorship must obtain a J-1 visa sponsored by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). The UW does not generally provide H-1B sponsorship for residents or fellows in its clinical training programs unless the resident/fellow is otherwise ineligible for a J-1 visa. Requests for H-1B visa sponsorship are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are subject to approval by the UW GME Office and through International Scholars Operations (ISO) UW Provost's Office.
