hand shakeThe University of Wisconsin Medical Alumni Association offers a Student Host Program for fourth-year medical students, new graduates, alumni and residents. There are 350 hosts across the United States with every major city represented.


Medical students who are traveling for residency interviews can stay with a University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health alumni host.


Hosts provide overnight accommodations and often meals, transportation and insight into the regional medical community. Medical students can view alumni host information on OASIS Notices. Wisconsin Medical Alumni Association staff will connect you with an alumni host.

Here's what participants are saying about their experiences with the Student Host Program:

"When you're expecting to move somewhere unfamiliar, you need some advice outside of what they tell you at the residency program. You need to know what your life is going to be like there." - Pat Fehling, MD '07

"The students need to know how good of ambassadors they are for the school to the alumni. We enjoy their visits as a way to learn more about the current happenings at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health." - William Summers, MD '67
