Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine
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.
Wisconsin Rural Physician Residency Assistance Program
Wisconsin Rural Physician Residency Assistance Program (WRPRAP) is committed to collaborating with rural health advocates, community clinicians, and residency educators throughout Wisconsin to develop educational experiences that foster understanding of, and interest in, rural medical practice among new physicians. WRPRAP's role is to provide grant funding to eligible Wisconsin providers of graduate medical education (i.e., residency training).
At issue are critically inadequate numbers of physicians and other medical workers in an escalating trend that will intensify over the next decade. Immediate action is necessary to nurture the interest and success of physicians who will meet medical workforce needs in rural Wisconsin. Wisconsin Act 190 for WRPRAP was renewed in the current biennium. Considerable collaboration with community clinicians, residency educators and others is required to effectively foster the preparation of the rural medical workforce through creation of new rotation experiences and rural track programs. Funds are competitively awarded through an application process open to all eligible programs.
