Why AuroraGraduate Medical Education?

Putting People First

Aurora Health Care is an integrated, not-for-profit health care provider serving Wisconsin and Illinois. Our people-focused approach is at the heart of everything we do. We treat each person as a person, not as a patient, an illness or an appointment.

A Leader in Health Care

Established in 1984, Aurora Health Care has grown to include 15 hospitals, more than 150 clinics and 70 pharmacies in communities throughout eastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. We strive to offer services that are close to home and help make the whole community healthier.

This includes supporting research that leads to new and improved ways to care for people and manage community health. Currently, Aurora has more than 700 clinical research projects — including more than 400 clinical trials. We also have more than 300 teaching faculty on staff, who are devoted to helping you become the best physician you can be.

Diverse Training Opportunities

Our medical residency and fellowship programs are designed to help you make the most of your medical education. Our goal is to fill each program with academic and clinical challenges, so you can become a well-rounded, competent and caring physician.

Aurora GME Pillars

Aurora Health Care Graduate Medical Education programs are built on a foundation of five pillars: learning, leadership, innovation, team-based patient care and population health.

Learn About the Five Pillars

Hands-On Experience

As an Aurora Health Care resident or fellow, you’ll train primarily at Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center or Aurora Sinai Medical Center. However, you’ll have the opportunity for cross-campus training rotations at other sites and clinics in the communities we serve.

No matter where you train, you’ll be fully involved in patient care — making decisions, offering opinions, honing skills, sharing and acquiring knowledge. You will practice medicine and learn in a wide variety of settings and across disciplines, gaining real-life experience that will better prepare you to practice in today's complex medical marketplace.

Resources & Benefits

During your hospital rotations, you’ll have access to excellent support services, including first-rate nursing staff and well-trained technical and ancillary personnel. There is also round-the-clock coverage for blood drawings and intravenous lines, as well as radiology and laboratory services.

Residents and fellows get free access to MEDLINE searches, many other health-related databases and the Advocate Aurora Library Network, with over 700 different medical journals, more than 2,000 audio-visual programs and an expansive book collection of more than 13,000 titles.

Aurora Health Care medical residencies and fellowships offer a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package.
