Working at UW Medical Center

Working at UW Medical Center means you're a part of medical history. For 50 years, our physicians and health-care professionals have made medical discoveries that have helped set the standard of care worldwide. From the shunt that made kidney dialysis possible to the treadmill test that helps evaluate heart problems, our physician-researchers have found solutions to their patients' health care problems.

And, while research is an important part of what we do, patient care is at the heart.

At UW Medical Center, we put the patient first in everything we do, whether that's preparing a patient for a double lung transplant or creating a treatment plan for a patient with advanced breast cancer. Our obstetrics staff form strong bonds with mothers-to-be who sometimes spend several weeks on bed rest in our women's unit as they await their babies' births.

Our cardiology specialists and staff get to know patients over many years, helping them manage a congenital heart problem or maintain healthy lives after a transplant. Our surgical staff are skilled in the latest minimally-invasive techniques that help patients get back to their lives in a matter of weeks after hip or knee replacements.

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top hospital every year since 1993, UW Medical Center is among the nation's leading academic medical centers. The medical center also was named the nation's first Magnet Hospital for excellence in nursing care by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, which has continued to honor UWMC with this award every year since 1994.

At UWMC our nurses, physicians, technicians, therapists and other health-care professionals put patients first. As a member of our team, you will, too.
