BIPOC Physicians Directory for UWSOM BIPOC Students

What if there was a directory where BIPOC students could easily talk to residents and physicians with identities similar to their own to find advice and answers to their questions?​ Support Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) medical students at the University of Washington School of Medicine (UWSOM).  Help us develop the UWSOM BIPOC Physicians Directory. 
The BIPOC Physicians Directory is a private, secured database of residents and physicians from across the country who can serve as points of contact for UWSOM BIPOC student questions on specialties, residency programs and regions. The GOAL of the Directory is to have a safe avenue for students to connect with BIPOC residents and physicians with identities similar to their own. This is not a mentorship directory or program. 

CME Requirements

CME requirements are being reinstated. To ensure that allopathic physicians (MDs) have ample time to resume pre-COVID licensing and regulatory requirements, Proclamation 20-32’s rescission will become effective on October 27, 2022.

Continuing Medical Education

Proclamation 20-32 suspended sections of the Washington Administrative Code (chapter  246-919 WAC for MDs continuing medical education (CME) requirements. 
In conjunction with the Department of Health and other medical professions, the Washington Medical Commission (WMC) will exercise enforcement discretion for MDs regarding the resumption of CME requirements and provide a grace period for MDs to complete their CME requirements.
