Family & Community Medicine Fellowships
"There is no way around this fact," wrote a group of family medicine leaders:
scholarly activity is "requisite" activity for family physicians.
Our fellowship programs are committed to developing the scholarship of our fellows in order to advance their careers, promote our department's vision of excellence, and improve patient care. Listed below are the programs we offer with additional information on individual web pages (see links on the left):
Academic Fellowship in Primary Care Research: a two-year full time program leading to a masters degree, designed to prepare family medicine researchers to advance knowledge in areas important to improving access to high quality, cost-effective primary care services.
Community-based Faculty Development Program at Waukesha Memorial Hospital Family Practice Residency: a one-year full-time program to develop skilled community-based residency faculty, focusing on educational skills and the development of a community health project.
Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship: a one-year program in collaboration with the MCW Department of Orthopedic Surgery, which leads to board certification and provides opportunities to cover athletes from recreational, professional and international teams.
