Family Medicine Center

Residents establish a continuity practice at one of four family medicine centers (FMCs). Each FMC has patients of all ages with a wide range of medical problems.

All four FMCs feature:

  • An integrated electronic health record system
  • Opportunities for residents to teach fellow residents, medical students, and other learners
  • Computer access in each exam room, the “staffing room,” resident work stations, as well as a library with reference books and other educational resources
  • A full range of medical care, including maternity care, home care, and nursing home coverage
  • Precepting with low resident to faculty ratios for optimal learning
  • Provision of a broad range of procedures

Each FMC staff also includes:

  • Faculty who identify resident education as their professional passion and primary focus
  • Faculty who also teach medical students and/or conduct research
  • Family physician faculty proficient in a wide range of clinical and procedural interests
  • Behavioral science faculty members, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who participate in patient care, teaching, and support of residents in their first practice
  • Clinic staff who are committed to excellence in resident education and patient care
  • Clinic managers who keep the FMCs running smoothly and are actively involved in teaching residents about what they need to learn about clinic operations

  • 12 residents (4 per year)
  • Practice setting: Rural
  • 15,000 visits/year

The Belleville Family Medical Center is located approximately 20 miles from Madison. As of October, 2011, the clinic moved into a new 21,000 square foot prairie style building, complete with a healing garden. The space was designed to allow alternative styles of practice, including group visits and extended hours.

Belleville staff are extensively involved in the community. The Belleville Community Health Improvement Program (BCHIP) was established through the clinic to use a community-oriented primary care approach to help the community identify, address, and evaluate the impact of interventions on community health priorities. Some activities resulting from BCHIP include BCAP, the Belleville Community Assistance Program, which provides small grants to those in need; the Healthy Breakfast Program; and the UFO Fun Run, part of the annual community UFO Days held each year in October.

Two Belleville residents per year are selected to participate in the Rural Health Equity Track, a customizable curriculum with a community focus and emphasis on health equity, advocacy and leadership.

Hospitals

For many students, an important consideration in choosing a program is whether they prefer a setting in which the only full-time house staff are family medicine residents, or a hospital with multiple residency programs.

Because the Madison residency is a university program primarily located in a community hospital, our residents benefit from the best of both worlds. Our residency combines the “high-touch” community hospital flavor of St. Mary’s with the strengths of being part of the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics and the School of Medicine and Public Health.

St. Mary’s Hospital (SMH)

» St. Mary’s Hospital Web site

  • Regional community hospital
  • 440 beds
  • 671 physicians
  • 23,000 inpatients per year

St. Mary’s Hospital is a major regional medical center offering state of the art medical care. Family medicine residents are the only full-time graduate medical trainees at the hospital. A dynamic, forward-looking institution, St. Mary’s has steadily supported our program since 1970.

The Family Medicine Department at St. Mary’s is the largest section in the hospital. Family physicians routinely receive privileges to practice the full range of family medicine including obstetrics, intensive care medicine, and specialized procedures. The case mix is typical of a full service community hospital, and residents are respected as important members of the health care team.


University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics (UWHC)

» University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics Web site

  • Tertiary care hospital
  • 566 beds
  • Over 1,200 physicians
  • 27,000 inpatients annually

UWHC has been rated as one of the top 50 hospitals in the country for the past decade. All of our teachers are UW School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) faculty, and we take full advantage of the variety of opportunities offered by the SMPH and university environment.

Residents spend four months of their residency on the UW Hospital Family Medicine Inpatient service, a “self-contained” service in which our faculty are the attending physicians and our senior residents lead the team.

Many residents elect time in one or more specialized outpatient clinic at UWHC during their second and third year of training. This gives our residents the benefit of exposure to the different clinical approaches and learning opportunities that exist only within an academic medical center.
