- Health Care Administration is a sponsoring member of Center for Urban Population Health. CUPH’s mission is to conduct and facilitate original population health research and educational initiatives that improve the health of urban communities through collaboration with academic and community organizations.
- Many Biomedical Sciences & Health Care Administration faculty are research partners of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute. CTSI was founded in 2008 as a regional academic-community partnership between four area academic institutions (Medical College of Wisconsin, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee School of Engineering and Marquette University), three hospitals (Froedtert Hospital, Children’s Wisconsin and Zablocki VA Medical Center); and Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin. It aims to develop an integrated, shared home for clinical and translational research, education and training, hallmarked by a borderless, collaborative, synergistic and investigator/community/patient-friendly environment.
This work is made possible through collaboration with many exceptional partners in the community.
BMSHCA enjoys collaborating with hundreds of community partners through research, internships and clinical training, mentorship, scholarships and community advocacy. If you are interested in partnering by establishing a scholarship, please contact Director of Advancement Shavonn Montgomery Brown by phone at 414-251-8214 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership, and Research partners with the community to inspire students, faculty and staff to engage in activities that foster enduring personal and social change.
