Our department has 160 clinical and research faculty including physicians, physician assistants, advanced registered nurse practitioners, and scientists, and 109 residents, fellows, and post-doctoral students. We have an incredibly talented staff and leadership team. We provide services to the Pacific Northwest (WWAMI - Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho), but also to patients from all other states, Canada, Asia, Africa, and other regions of the world. We are recognized for patient and family-centered care. Our core value is to provide the best in care for every patient every time. We are proud of our research endeavors, which aim at providing healthcare that is more accessible, less invasive, at a lower cost, and with optimal outcomes. We are ranked # 13 in NIH funds among academic institutions. Our valued educational programs are geared toward forming physicians and scientists who care deeply about our communities and see innovation as central to the challenges of the future.
The University of Washington Interventional Radiology Division covers five sites (the University of Washington Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, Veteran's Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, and Northwest Hospital) and has an affiliate agreement for fellowship training with Seattle Children's Hospital. Our service provides a broad range of vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures, with particular strengths in endovascular treatment of venous disease, interventional oncology, solid organ transplant interventions, trauma, and dialysis access management. The clinical practice is outstanding and includes inpatient admitting services and an outpatient clinic for each IR attending physician. We have an active IR/DR residency program with three residents per year as well as a full complement of Advanced Practice Providers to support both our inpatient and outpatient services.
The section operates an active animal laboratory at the South Lake Union campus with considerable NIH grant support. Teaching is an essential element of the position.

This range is inclusive of base salary provided through the UW Physicians (UWP) practice plan, in addition to base salary provided by the University.
