Welcome to Family and Community Medicine
Celebrating Over Forty Years of Care
Family Medicine was born 42 years ago at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) out of a need for better health care for the people of this state and region. MCW, the state of Wisconsin, federal agencies, foundations, community agencies and many individuals have invested considerable energy, monetary resources, intelligence and personal commitment towards this goal.
