Position Summary:

Training in Urban Medicine and Public Health (TRIUMPH) is a longitudinal educational experience for UW medical students committed to providing health care for medically underserved, urban populations. By integrating clinical training with the development of leadership and community and public health skills, TRIUMPH prepares students to become community-engaged physician leaders to work in medically underserved urban areas. TRIUMPH has been a WIN-WIN for key stakeholders: State of Wisconsin; University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH); Aurora Health Care, and Milwaukee community partners.

Established in 2009, TRIUMPH is an eight-credit sequence of courses that was previously integrated with the third and fourth years of medical school. UW medical students apply and are selected to join the program based on their motivation to work in urban underserved settings. TRIUMPH students relocate to Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin, to complete most of their clinical rotations in Aurora Health Care facilities. Students participate in a core curriculum with seminars focused on development of community, public health and leadership skills, mindfulness/self-care, and cultural sensitivity. They work with community partners on health improvement projects one half day per week (at least 160 hours) through the duration of the program. The projects are proposed by community partners and selected by the students based on their interests. A two-week community exploration/immersion experience near the beginning of the program and a leadership skills course in October of the fourth year help students accomplish these objectives. Additionally, many students have selected the TRIUMPH-MD-MPH dual degree option. These students complete a Master of Public Health degree at UW-Madison with an additional year of coursework between their third and fourth years, combining their TRIUMPH and MPH projects over 2-3 years.

This position will provide program development, leadership and teaching for the TRIUMPH program in Milwaukee, WI.

Additional Information:

Candidates should have a strong interest in promoting health equity among urban underserved populations. Flexibility with primary position to participate in core curriculum and projects at .20 FTE. Salary is prorated to appointment percentage.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
