The Wausau Family Medicine Residency Program offers rigorous, unopposed training in a welcoming community. We are one of the longest-standing family medicine residency programs in Wisconsin. Our clinic, which opened at our current location in March 2008, offers spacious, modern facilities for patient care, learning, and teaching.

I chose this program, first and foremost, for the quality of people I met here. The Program Director and faculty all strive to ensure a nurturing learning environment on a daily basis.”
-Taha El-Shahat, MD, 3rd Year Resident

Our program provides challenging experiences in rural medicine, cardiac and medical intensive care, emergency medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics. We also encourage residents to construct electives that are meaningful to their own goals and interests.

We invite you to learn more about our program and encourage you to contact us. Welcome home to Wausau!
