The Division of Education provides health career learning opportunities for adult learners from college level training through adult continuing education and CME.
In addition to training 7,000 employees, 650 doctors, 77 medical and dental residents Marshfield Clinic provides educational experiences for over 1,000 college students.
Our primary student affiliation centers on medical student training as an Academic Campus of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. From time to time, the Division also gets requests to provide high school students a worksite introduction into health careers.
