This program gives health professions students in Wisconsin an opportunity to become immersed in Wisconsin's diverse communities and cultures while they explore healthcare delivery and public health in medically underserved areas and learn from students in other disciplines.

The program offers several multi-day sessions during winter, spring, and summer breaks throughout the year. Session topics are provided on the program website. Sessions are offered on different dates in either in-person, virtual, or hybrid formats.

Students applying for the spring break sessions will have the option to incorporate the Wisconsin Express program into a 1 credit course offered by the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Additional information regarding this option is available on the program website.


All students enrolled in health professions programs throughout the state's public and private colleges and universities are welcome to apply.

In past years, students have come from physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, pharmacy, nursing, nutritional science, social work, global health, public health, and physician assistant programs.
