Residency

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Emergency Medicine Residency Training Program!

We invite you to explore the next few pages to learn more about our curriculum, our community, and some of what makes our residency unique.

At the University of Wisconsin, we balance high expectations with unparalleled investment, ensuring each resident acquires the skills and habits needed to thrive during residency and beyond. In our world-class Simulation Center, you will learn inter-professional practice and team skills that will be imperative for success in tomorrow’s healthcare delivery systems. In the skies over Wisconsin (through one of the Midwest’s premier Medflight programs) or in the hospitals of Africa (through one of our long-standing global health partnerships), you will gain the skills needed to practice emergency medicine in the most challenging of environments, when lives are in the balance. Through it all, an emphasis on patient and family-centered care will keep you grounded, continually reminding you of the reasons you pursued a career in medicine in the first place.

At the University of Wisconsin, we have high aspirations for our residents.  Our goal is to guide you through this journey, ensuring your hard work pays off so that you can realize your full potential, wherever your interests and talents may lie.  We promise to deliver outstanding clinical and didactic experiences, along with wide exposure to the many facets of Emergency Medicine, taught by nationally-renowned educators, all within a close-knit community of support.  Come grow with us!
