Job Summary:

The UW School of Medicine and Public Health's Wisconsin Partnership Program is committed to improving the health and well-being of the people of Wisconsin now and for years to come.

In alignment with the Wisconsin Idea, the Partnership Program achieves its mission through investments in innovative research and education programs and community partnerships. Since its inception in 2004, over 450 grants totaling more than $205 million have been awarded to community organizations and to UW System faculty. Currently, the Partnership Program, through its two governance committees, the Oversight and Advisory Committee and the Partnership Education and Research Committee, allocates approximately $15 million annually.
