The salary for our psychology resident cohort for the 2023-2024 training year will be $41,544 plus benefits (includes medical, dental, and life insurance). This amount is subject to a possible increase change based on the state’s minimum wage requirements. Psychology residents receive eleven days of vacation, five days of professional leave, and accrue one day of sick leave per month. Because residents are here for one year only, they are not eligible for leave under the Family Medical Leave Act. However, personal vacation can be taken for family medical emergencies.

The Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA) supports the University’s compliance with the law and spirit of equal opportunity and affirmative action as it relates to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, citizenship, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, or status as a disabled veteran or Vietnam-era veteran, or other protected veterans. Further information regarding these policies and statutes may be obtained through the University of Washington Equal Opportunity Office website.
