The UW Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (UW DFMCH) cares for patients at 18 clinics throughout Wisconsin. All clinics offer a full range of family medicine services, including:

  • Comprehensive health-care for patients of all ages;
  • Acute and chronic illness care;
  • Obstetric services;
  • Preventive health services, including family planning;
  • Minor surgery; and
  • Special services, such as geriatrics, substance abuse, mental health, sports medicine, osteopathic manipulation and integrative medicine.

All clinics provide 24-hour call service and have privileges at local hospitals. Furthermore, all clinics use a fully integrated, secure electronic medical records system, which enables providers to coordinate patient information between sites and with most referring hospitals.

Each clinic is staffed by UW-DFMCH faculty, who have appointments at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. Additional staff may include nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, psychologists, pharmacists and health educators.
