The University of Wisconsin Preventive Medicine Residency Program offers a comprehensive approach to education, combining clinical, didactic, health care systems and public health systems training. During the two-year program, residents gain hands-on experience in applied public health and population medicine through various practicum and clinical rotations, including at state and local public health departments, accountable care organizations, community health clinics, and large hospital systems.

Additionally, all residents receive ongoing didactic training in preventive medicine and general public health throughout the program; and residents without a prior Master of Public Health degree (or equivalent education) complete coursework to obtain a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
