Office of Rural Programs

WRITE Faculty Development

In past years, WRITE preceptors have assembled in Seattle for collaborative program improvement and faculty development. Last year, the Office of Rural Programs revived this tradition but with a new twist, that once again offers the opportunity for WRITE preceptors to get together as a group in Seattle.

We invite you to attend the second annual WRITE Faculty Development Conference in Seattle and consider combining this with some of the best educational primary care CME in the region!

WRITE Faculty Development Conference
Thurs-Fri, SEPT 12-13, 2019
South Campus Center
UW Campus, Seattle




The WRITE Faculty Development Conference will begin at 12 noon on Thursday and conclude at 4pm on Friday with a social networking event on Thursday evening (TRUST/WRITE students will be in attendance!).  Offerings will augment the Family Medicine course events.  Up to 6.75 Prescribed CME credit(s) are available from the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).


47th Annual Advances in Family Medicine and Primary Care CME Course
Sun-Fri, SEPT 8-13, 2019
Health Sciences Center

This course offers both five and three-day registration options. Come for WRITE Faculty development on Thursday and Friday, FM CME for three days, or attend the whole week!


As a WRITE preceptor, you may use your WRITE travel budget to cover your travel expenses to attend these meetings.  Please do not miss this great opportunity and make sure to save the date. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
