The Division is supported by two National Institute of Health training grants. These grants support 2-3 years for research training for our research fellows and may offer additional postions to promote diversity in health-related research. 

We strongly encourage underrepresented minorities to apply. Interested applicants should contact the Fellowship Administrator for more information and send their CV and letter of formal research interest. The Fellowship Administrator will forward your information to the appropriate faculty for further evaluation. These supplemental grant awards are limited to citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States or to individuals who have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States (i.e., in possession of a Permanent Resident Card, Form I-551).

UW Center for Health Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (CEDI): The Division and the University of Washington School of Medicine offer many resources for fellows and trainees through the UW School of Medicine Center for Health Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (CEDI). The mission of CEDI is to build individual and institutional capacity to achieve excellence, foster innovation, and further health equity in our state and region by advancing diversity and inclusiveness throughout the School of Medicine’s teaching, patient care and research programs. 

University of Washington Network of Underrepresented Residents and Fellows (UW-NURF) is a diverse body of residents, fellows and faculty representing all specialties. UW-NURF is sponsored by the Office of Graduate Medical Education and the Office of Multicultural Affairs and aims to promote cultural diversity in medicine through community involvement, mentorship, professional networking, and recruitment of Underrepresented Minorities (URM) in Medicine.

The Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP) is sponsored by the Graduate School and is committed to expanding graduate education to everyone. Many of GO-MAP’s events and programming are geared toward underrepresented minority graduate students and are open to all University of Washington graduate students, faculty and staff, especially those interested in maintaining and increasing a racially diverse graduate student population.
