The UW Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (UW DFMCH) cares for patients at 17 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.
