Medical Education

We train more of tomorrow’s medical leaders

At Aurora BayCare, we have a tradition of teaching excellence, educating a wide range of future health professionals, including more medical students than any other hospital system in Northeast Wisconsin.

We partner with UW School of Medicine and Public Health to train and shape our country’s future doctors, inspiring promising students to lead and transform medicine.

Why do we do it? It keeps us current and connected to today’s medical training centers. Student education supports cross-generational learning and allows us to influence medical education in a way that better prepares students for the challenges and opportunities of delivering leading-edge care.
