The University of Wisconsin Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (UW-DFMCH) sponsors several clinical and research fellowship programs to help family physicians further meet their career goals:

Clinical Fellowships

  • Academic Fellowship: This fellowship provides educational and professional experiences to enhance family physicians’ teaching, clinical, scholarly, and leadership skills.
  • Addiction Medicine Fellowship: This Fellowship, created in 2010, is one of the first programs in the country that provides training to family physicians with an interest in becoming Board Certified in the newly recognized specialty of Addiction Medicine.
  • Integrative Medicine Fellowship: This fellowship—one of the few worldwide that combines both academic and Integrative Medicine interests into one overall experience—prepares individuals to become national and international leaders in Integrative Medicine.
  • Sports Medicine Fellowship: This fellowship provides clinical, teaching, and research experiences to train primary care physicians to care for sports-related problems in children, adolescents, and adults.

Research Fellowships

  • Primary Care Research Fellowship: This fellowship provides opportunities to individuals aiming for careers in medical research related to the organization, delivery, or effectiveness of primary health care and preventive medicine.
