Wausau Family Medicine

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.

We are pleased to offer generous and competitive benefit packages for residents in our programs.

“This program is extremely supportive of their residents and works very hard to create opportunity for an individual to pursue their specific goals.”
-Samantha Rivera, MD, 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.
