Applying & Interviewing

Thank you for considering the three-year, ACGME-accredited emergency medicine residency program at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics. Graduates of our program are qualified to take the Board Examination in Emergency Medicine.

No. of Positions

13 residency positions are available on a competitive basis for the 2025 Match cycle.

How to Apply

Applications will be accepted through October 31, 2024. We accept applications only via the supplemental Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), and participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).


Interviews will be conducted virtually from October through January. Applicants selected to interview will be notified via ERAS on the basis of academic achievement and evaluation of a personal statement and letters of recommendation.

Our program employs a comprehensive, holistic review of application materials that considers the unique qualifications and experiences of each individual. It is the policy of the University of Wisconsin and UW Health that no person shall be subject to discrimination in the process of resident selection on the basis of race, age, religion, color, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, marital status, pregnancy, arrest or conviction record, or military/veteran status.

Second Look Opportunities

We will be offering several in-person and virtual second look opportunities this Match cycle. These visits allow candidates to get an in-depth perspective of our program, interact with residents, faculty and staff, and explore the Madison area (in-person opportunities).

Second look opportunities are optional and will have no bearing on an applicant’s positioning on the rank list. More information about second look opportunities will be provided with initial interview offers.
