TRIUMPH Admissions

Interested in applying for the Training in Urban Medicine and Public Health (TRIUMPH) program? Make sure to review the curriculum, timeline and guidelines.

How to Apply

UW medical students with an interest in working with urban populations may apply for admission to the TRIUMPH program in late fall of their first year of medical school (M1) and will be notified by early spring regarding their acceptance into the program.

During the fall semester, M1 student information sessions about TRIUMPH are held. These sessions include question and answer time with TRIUMPH faculty/staff and senior TRIUMPH students. The selection process includes a written application, a letter of recommendation and an in-person interview.

Interested TRIUMPH candidates are expected to complete the Integrating Medicine and Public Health (PHS 712) course prior to starting TRIUMPH in the spring of their M2 year. Students who have already obtained a master of public health (MPH) degree are exempt from this requirement.

TRIUMPH students may also elect to participate in the Path of Distinction (PoD) in Public Health, student research programs or the TRIUMPH/Master of Public Health program.
