The Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine (WARM) is a rural education program within the MD Program curriculum at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison.
Medical students who are enrolled in this four-year program will learn to develop the skills and have opportunities to participate in a rural setting.
The goal of the Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine program is to admit students who intend to practice rural medicine and ultimately help increase the number of physicians who practice medicine in rural Wisconsin and help improve the health of rural Wisconsin communities.
The Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine ensures that its students are meeting the same rigorous goals, objectives and competencies that the UW School of Medicine and Public Health requires while tailoring students' experiences to meet their career interests.
Students completing WARM are prepared for residency in any specialty area, as rural Wisconsin hospitals and health systems have expressed a need for physicians of all specialties, with an emphasis on primary care.
