Program Description

We are an academic powerhouse nestled between Portland and Seattle amidst the beautiful Cascade Mountains, the Puget Sound, and the Hoh rain forest that affords you the autonomy to seek out opportunities in your areas of interest. At minimum, our residents graduate as outstanding Army Emergency Medicine physicians. Our program is flexible enough to allow the pursuit of individual areas of interest such as: wilderness medicine, combat medic training, medical simulation, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, research, and involvement in organizational leadership at hospital and national levels. Do not let our excellent board pass rate and in-training exam scores scare you away – yes, we have a culture of excellence, but that excellence starts with a foundation of prioritizing family and wellness as our true core values. We also invest a great deal of energy in training our faculty to foster a safe and effective environment via evidence-based learning strategies. It is our highest priority when recruiting faculty to attract individuals that are not only excellent physicians and educators, but ones of character with a team-based mentality.
