A key partner

Andréa Campbell has been valuable member of the Seattle Internal Medicine Residency Program leadership team and an active partner for many efforts within the Department of Medicine for over seven years.

In her role as assistant to the directors, Andréa manages the onboarding and recruitment of residents, a task that spans the full academic year and encompasses event coordination, communications, interview preparation, applicant tracking and various pre-employment processes. 

As the primary counterpart to the assistant program directors for diversity and inclusion, wellness, and professional development, Andréa plans several additional program events throughout the year and has collaborated on a number of scholarly projects and presentations relating to these topics.

 “My favorite part about working at UW in the Department of Medicine is the people,” Andréa said.

“I adore my colleagues and the residents I get to support during their time in our program. In addition to the people, I enjoy and am grateful for the many opportunities I have had as a staff member to engage in scholarly work and present at conferences.”

The ultimate collaborator

Among the many projects she has worked on within the program, Andréa helped spearhead the program’s shift to a 100% virtual resident recruitment process, contributed to a comprehensive wellness framework tailored for adult learners, and cofounded and served as coeditor for the Internal Medicine Residency EDItorial: a monthly equity, diversity, and inclusion newsletter. She and program partners have presented on these topics and more at program events, within the School of Medicine and at national conferences. Along with her program staff colleagues, Andréa was one of the inaugural recipients of the DOM Gender Equity Trailblazer Award.

“It is a pleasure to work with Andréa,” said Dr. Daniel Cabrera, Assistant Program Director for Diversity and Inclusion for the residency program.

“This past academic year we collaborated on several posters and workshops about the integration of values and equity into the process of selecting residents for our program. Andréa was able to present her contributions on a national scale and as a result has been invited for future talks for other academic medical centers.”

Beyond her work within the residency program, Andréa is active within several of the department’s initiatives aimed at promoting well-being and diversity, equity and inclusion.

She is a Restorative Justice Facilitator, a DEI Champion within the DOM DEI Council, a member of the Well-Being Strategic Work Group (Advocacy subgroup) for the DOM Strategic Plan, and recently became a Department of Medicine Bias Navigator.

“What I appreciate most about Andrea is her ability to hold multiple perspectives when working with others,” Cabrera said. “She is the ultimate collaborator and brings lenses of empathy and equity to every aspect of her work. I can’t say enough about how highly I regard Andréa.”

Background & interests

Andréa navigated her journey to the Department of Medicine after earning her undergraduate degree in psychology (minor in Spanish) from the University of Arizona. Early in her career, she gained experience in public radio and local government, particularly parks and recreation with a focus on aquatics.

Andréa obtained her master of science in industrial organizational psychology, graduating from Northcentral University in 2022.

She enjoys travelling, spending time in nature, playing her guitar and/or ukulele, reading, and the joy of sharing food with others, proving that she is as active and creative in her spare time as she is at work.
