UW, Marshfield Clinic Health System recognize education partnership with name change

UW medical school campus now called Marshfield Clinic Health System/Northern Academic Campus

May 30, 2019

MARSHFIELD – Since 1927, Marshfield Clinic Health System and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health have collaborated to educate the next generation of medical providers in Marshfield. In recognition of that partnership, the Marshfield campus now will be called Marshfield Clinic Health System/Northern Academic Campus.

The two organizations celebrated the name change Wednesday, May 29, in Marshfield, with educational talks, site visits with providers and professors, and a recognition reception.

"After almost a century of partnership, thousands of our students have received their education and on-site training at Marshfield," said Dr. Robert Golden, dean of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. "Marshfield Clinic's network of rural clinical practices provides students with robust training opportunities."

Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield is a clinical campus for UW-Madison's School of Medicine and Public Health, providing third and fourth-year UW-Madison medical students in clerkship rotations in Eau Claire, Marshfield, Minocqua, Rice Lake and Wausau. Junior year clerkships include obstetrics/gynecology, medicine, pediatrics, and primary care. Senior medical students work with patients under the supervision of physicians and do rotations in family practice, pediatrics, gynecology, psychiatry and surgery.

Since 2009, Marshfield Clinic Health System has been part of Wisconsin Academy of Rural Medicine (WARM) program. Third and fourth year UW medical students learn and work at rural clinics in an effort to attract them to serving rural communities.

"We have a long history of teaching future generations of health care workers," said Dr. Matthew Jansen, medical director of Marshfield Clinic Health System's Division of Education and associate dean for Marshfield Clinic Health System/Northern Academic Campus. "Teaching health care undergraduate students can foster a life-long love for helping others and creating their desire to improve community health."
