At the University of Wisconsin Department of Emergency Medicine, we aim to be nothing less than the best. In less than two decades we have designed and developed one of the most dynamic, forward-thinking residency training programs in the country, and though our growth has been swift and innovative, we've never lost sight of what grounds us: training the next generation of leaders in emergency medicine scholarship and service.

Our investment in your training, from your first shift as an intern to your last month as a pre-attending, is one of the biggest reasons why our graduates are recognized as emerging game changers in our specialty across the country and around the world.
