Costs/ Finances
2013-2014 UW Medical Student Budget
This is the budget for any 1st - 4th year student attending medical school during the 2013-2014 year. Living with parents/relatives decreases room/board.
Upass= Bus pass

The University of Washington School of Medicine has many graduate medical programs in the form of residency and fellowships.
The University of Washington employs the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) to match their prospective residents with the available specialties.
Residents and Fellows receive stipends from the University of Washington to alleviate any costs of living and payment requirements during training. Below is a sample stipend schedule for 2013-2014, in order to receive a general idea of how much money a resident receives in stipends and at what intervals during their training at University of Washington’s School of Medicine.

The University of Washington School of Medicine is dedicated to improving the general health and well-being of the public. In pursuit of its goals, the School is committed to excellence in biomedical education, research, and health care. The School is also dedicated to ethical conduct in all its activities. As the pre-eminent academic medical center in our region and as a national leader in biomedical research, we place special emphasis on educating and training physicians, scientists, and allied health professionals dedicated to two distinct goals
Meeting the health care needs of our region, especially by recognizing the importance of primary care and providing service to underserved populations
Advancing knowledge and assuming leadership in the biomedical sciences and in academic medicine.

1. Discover waterfront dining with your own packed or take-out lunch at Sakuma Viewpoint
2. Hike the Lake Washington Ship Canal Trail along the Montlake Cut and into the Washington Park Arboretum.
3. View the Suzzallo library. On the eastern side of Red Square, the collegiate-gothic façade of the library beckons as one of the campus’ most memorable landmarks. The building is touted as the “soul of the university.” On its second floor, the impressive 65-foot-high, 52-foot-wide and 250-foot-long Reading Room is a hallmark stop for visitors. Its oak bookcases, long tables, massive hanging lamps and hushed atmosphere provide a fitting setting for quiet study.

Some free things to do around the campus:
WWAMI Medical Program
Overview: WWAMI (pronounced like whammy) is a program between 5 northwestern states, Washington Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho, that started in 1971, and is geared towards training pre-med students for primary care within these 5 northwestern states. It is an effort to make up for the maldistribution of healthcare professionals amongst these 5 states, and the program is funded by each of the 5 states involved to ensure that each of the states has positions for students.
There are 6 Universities involved:
-University of Washington
-Washing State University
-University of Alaska
-University of Idaho
-University of Wyoming
-Montana State University

The program has 5 goals:
-Provide Publicly supported medical education
-Increase the number of primary-health care physicians and correct the maldistribution of physicians
-Provide community based medical education
-Expand graduate medical education and continuing medical education
-Provide all of these in a cost-effective manner

Education part of the program:
-The first year of students’ education is done in their home state
-Second year is University of Washington
-Third and Fourth year depend on whether or not they wish to continue the program, and if so, students continue doing clerkships at the various campuses involved within the program
