ditzal-barabooLocated just 45 minutes north of Madison, the Baraboo RTT Family Medicine Residency Program trains residents in a rural setting, providing them with a lifestyle that truly mimics private practice in a rural community.

“What I love about Baraboo is that it allows me the flexibility and connections of a well-known and respected department of family medicine as well as the procedural and high-risk opportunities of rural family medicine. It is truly the best of both worlds!”
—Rachel Hartline, MD, PGY3 – Class of 2015

The program offers a flexible “hybrid longitudinal curriculum” in an apprenticeship model allowing residents to gain full-spectrum family medicine experience by participating in: hospital rounds, clinic, urgent care/ER call, hospital admissions, and obstetrics. In this setting, residents are involved in much of the hands-on continuity patient care.
