Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

WMJ is a peer-reviewed, indexed scientific journal published quarterly and online ahead of print each month through a partnership between the Wisconsin Medical Society (Society), the Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. WMJ provides the opportunity for health care and public health professionals throughout the Midwest to publish original research, case reports, review articles, brief reports and essays about current medical and public health issues.

WMJ is available through subscription and electronically—free, full text online. It also can be accessed in PubMed through the National Library of Medicine. While WMJ has many readers throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest, Web tracking indicates that its articles are accessed from around the country and even the world.
