Why Choose Swedish Hospital's Family Medicine Residency?

Our patient population is diverse in ethnicity, religion, socio-economic background, age, country of origin and clinical pathology. You will see some incredibly interesting clinical cases here with Swedish Hospital.

This diversity is reflected in our staff, more than 50% of whom live within a five-mile radius of the hospital. Our staff speaks over 40 languages and we have full time Korean and Spanish interpreters on site. Patients can access telephone translation of more than 240 languages, including sign language via video remote interpretation, 24 hours a day.

We're Busy

In 2018, we delivered 2,317 babies, saw 49,097 patients in the emergency room, performed 14,851 surgical procedures, admitted 12,613 patients and saw 300,470 patients in our clinics.

Now is a great time to be a primary care doctor at Swedish Hospital – there is a huge volume of outpatient appointments and we are looking to recruit and retain doctors after residency to meet this need.
