Wisconsin is a great place to practice family medicine. Approximately two-thirds of our graduates accept jobs or begin fellowships in the state.

Family physicians in Wisconsin practice full-spectrum family medicine, including hospital privileges, with few difficulties. The number of malpractice lawsuits here is one of the lowest in the country.

What our residents say…

“Wisconsin provides a respectful, collaborative environment for primary care physicians, and is one of the few states not in a malpractice crisis.

Wisconsin is also a great place to live, offering its beautiful natural resources in both rural and urban setting. I can’t think of any place I’d rather be!”
