The academic and clinical program is enhanced by the fact that the training occurs in four diverse locations. The four affiliated hospitals of the University of Washington form one of the largest health care systems in the United States, serving patients from Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI):
These four hospitals are located in Seattle, Washington and play complementary roles, providing specialized care for all people in the Pacific Northwest and the surrounding regions. In addition, residents spend one year training at St. George's Hospital in London, England.
