Academic Programs

Residency Program

At the UW Emergency Medicine, our approach to residency education and training is designed to provide you with the benefits of a four-year training program in a three-year package, preparing physicians for the future of healthcare.


Our department sponsors several advanced training opportunities for emergency physicians to develop their knowledge and skills in subspecialty areas while learning from our dedicated faculty mentors.

Medical Students

All medical students at the University of Wisconsin complete a rotation in emergency medicine, with additional courses and extracurricular opportunities for individuals interested in spending more time exploring our specialty.

Global Learning

Recognizing that we live in a global community, we seek to provide learners with a deeper understanding of culture, language, society, and health in diverse communities.

We believe that global health experiences and education increase this awareness and have the power to reshape how we approach our discipline, communities, and our impact on others.

Opportunities exist for medical students, residents, and fellows interested in advancing the science of global emergency care.
