The mission of the Wisconsin Research & Education Network (WREN) is to promote and conduct primary care research and education in partnership with primary care clinicians and the communities they serve.

WREN’s Connection with DFMCH

Our home is within the UW Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (DFMCH), one of the oldest, largest, and top-ranked family medicine departments in the nation.

The DFMCH and WREN have complementary missions, and although WREN functions independently, the DFMCH provides administrative oversight and support.

Benefits of this connection include:

  • Research opportunities in DFMCH clinics
  • Increased visibility and potential research opportunities
  • Opportunities for collaboration between DFMCH faculty, residents, and students

Wisconsin Research & Education Network (WREN)
