WISH Program Application Process

WISH has developed a formal intake and grant process for all WISH education/training programs. All UW Medicine entities ("internal") will need to fill out an application. All others are considered external and will have a separate process found here.


Internal Requests

The application process is available online and completed applications are accepted on a rolling-basis with a quarterly review deadline. Once accepted, applicants will be notified and can begin the scheduling process. All existing programs must have an application on file to be considered for the following academic year.


You can now begin the process with your new application found at:

WISH Resource Application →

To create an application you will be required to login with your UW NetID.

External Requests

WISH facilities are available for a variety of needs (e.g. educational and training courses, research programs, film and media location, etc.). External and industry sponsored courses are subject to availability, WISH fee, and may require a facility agreement.


External Process

STEP 1: Check Availability

Contact Bridget Kovach to identify available options and place a temporary hold.

STEP 2: Session Prep & Quote Approval

Once a date has been identified, WISH will discuss course space and equipment requirements. A quote will then be developed and circulated for review and approval. Once approved, the calendar hold will become an official booking.

STEP 3: Session Prep Finalized

Following official booking, our technical staff will work with the primary coordinator for logistical planning, course setup, and to ensure all session needs are met.


+Q: What does availability look like?

Subject to availability, external and industry partners may request books during regular business hours (Monday - Friday, 8AM - 5PM), as well as after-hours and weekends. Due to limited availability, we recommend 6-8 weeks advanced notice for scheduling.

+Q: What does the WISH fee include?

The WISH fee includes:
Facility rental
Use of WISH tools & equipment (e.g. lighting, instrumentation, AV equipment)
Onsite technical assistance
Basic personal protective equipment
