Distinguished Alumni Award

Dr. Jim Berbee '85, MS'87, MBA'89,  is among four recipients of the Wisconsin Alumni Association's highest distinction: the Distinguished Alumni Award. 

Berbee is a clinical assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and an emergency physician at the William S. Middleton Memorial Veteran's Hospital.

A four-time Ironman triathlete, Berbee once broke his collarbone during training, and the care he received inspired an interest in emergency medicine. After selling his highly successful business to the public company CDW in 2006, he attended Stanford University's School of Medicine and earned his MD in 2010. He subsequently completed his residency in emergency medicine at University Hospital.

He and his wife, Karen Walsh support human health and welfare projects through the BerbeeWalsh Foundation, including a $10 million gift to the UW School of Medicine and Public Health's Department of Emergency Medicine that has been transformational for faculty, staff and patients. Berbee is a trustee for the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, the Morgridge Institute for Research and WICell Research Institute.
