Family Medicine Residency
Medicine is visionary. Your residency training should be, too! Affiliated with the Medical College of WI, we at the Columbia St. Mary's Family Medicine Residency program are excited about the future of family medicine. As we have envisioned the future of family medicine, we have completely restructured our educational program to prepare you best for your future practice. Today, family physicians' practices are more diverse and more ambulatory-based than ever before. Our response? We developed innovative curricular tracks (Maternity, International Global Health and International and Community Medicine), which provide you with the focus and flexibility to tailor your educational experience to your future practice preferences. We augmented our solid roots in strong inpatient rotations with a new ambulatory curriculum. Our new state-of-the-art Family Health Center, complete with an electronic medical record and unique daily office hour schedule for all residents, will better simulate your future practice. Here you will establish habits of life-long learning in order to become an advocate for your patients, a leader in your community, and excited about the future.
