Each fall, the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health welcomes a new class of students who will become doctors, physical therapists, physician assistants, genetic counselors, public health professionals and biomedical scientists.

Our school — the only integrated school of medicine and public health in the country — is fortunate to have the depth and breadth of outstanding educational programs that are central to our mission of improving the health of Wisconsin and beyond, and we're very proud of our students who will become tomorrow's leaders dedicated to improving the health of individuals and communities.
