Bioethics Fellowship
How to Apply


Interested candidates should submit an application online and mail a curriculum vitae, a personal statement about career and research interests, a writing sample and three letters of reference (submitted directly).  Due to funding constraints, we are only able to accept individuals who have US citizenship or permanent resident status. We are not able to have candidates with J-1 or other visas.

For individuals currently enrolled in clinical fellowships at Seattle Children's or the University of Washington, we offer the opportunity to explore creative ways to combine the primary clinical fellowship with components of our bioethics fellowship. These requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. For more information, please contact Dr. Diekema at the address shown below.


The application deadline is September 15, 2019 for the Fellowship beginning July 2020.
