Residency Training Programs
The key to the success of the Medical College of Wisconsin programs in Green Bay and Central Wisconsin is the development of residency training positions by area health systems. Research has shown that the greatest determinant of where a physician will practice is where they did their residency training. The Medical College already has begun to develop plans for establishing residency programs with the support and guidance of the Wisconsin Hospital Association, UW Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, the Wisconsin Medical Society, and Green Bay and Central Wisconsin area health systems. Various traditional and innovative funding models are being explored.
The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Board of Trustees has set a modest milestone to develop a minimum of 10 new residency positions to be operational in both Green Bay and Central Wisconsin as early as 2018.
