The mission of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison is to help meet the health needs of Wisconsin and beyond through excellence in education, research, patient care and community service. That goal is renewed each fall when about 170 entering medical students - men and women from throughout the United States - arrive at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health to begin their journeys toward fulfilling careers in health care.
The UW School of Medicine and Public Health offers medical, graduate and health professions degree programs that span the full range of biological and clinical sciences. We are committed to training physicians and scientists who are prepared to meet the evolving health care needs of Wisconsin and beyond.
When class is over, you'll find a wealth of recreational and cultural diversions in Madison, which is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the country. From relaxing at the Memorial Union Terrace to exploring the city's outstanding network of running and biking trails, there's always something fun to do in Madison.
