UW School of Medicine (School) currently has an outstanding opportunity for a Director of Regulatory Guidance, a position which is responsible for a variety of regulatory and contractual matters for the School. The School is nationally and internationally recognized for excellent programs in clinical care, teaching and research activities. The School has over 30 academic departments with over 2,500 paid and 5,300 courtesy faculty members, over 4900 medical students and trainees, and more federal research support than any other public medical school, with an annual budget of over $1.3 billion.
