“One of the most important attributes that I was seeking in a family medicine residency was a supportive learning environment. I am so impressed daily by the dedication of our faculty, support staff, and my co-residents. It is such a pleasure to be part of Madison’s Family Medicine family.”Christa Pittner-Smith, MD
