Froedtert Health supports the development of future health care professionals through student placement opportunities across the enterprise.

An affiliation agreement and program memorandum are required for each student clinical experience. Please check the Froedtert Health Affiliations list for your school name. If your school is not listed, e-mail gradprogramstudents@froedtert.com to start the affiliation process. This process can take 6 or more months and does not guarantee placement.

For Froedtert South requests (Froedtert Kenosha Hospital and Froedtert Pleasant Prairie Hospital), please contact the medical center directly. The Froedtert Health affiliation agreement does not cover student placements at these locations.
