Visiting Student Diversity Scholarship

At this time, the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is following AAMC guidelines regarding visiting student rotations.

The BerbeeWalsh Department of Emergency Medicine warmly welcomes fourth-year medical students with an interest in Emergency Medicine from all across the nation; our excellent faculty are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for the specialty. The Department encourages qualified underrepresented medical students (URM) seeking external emergency medicine rotations to apply for our diversity scholarship for visiting students.

The mission of the scholarship is to expose minority medical students from underrepresented backgrounds to the training program in the Department of Emergency Medicine. The award aims to increase the number of minority trainees in the emergency medicine residency program at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and in the specialty of emergency medicine in general.
