Central Wisconsin Residency Program

Edward Krall, MDWe are a recently (2016) ACGME accredited program that is part of an initiative of the Medical College of Wisconsin to develop medical resources in underserved areas of the state of Wisconsin. Our first class of three residents started in July, 2017. The Medical College established a new medical school campus in Wausau in 2016. Along with that medical school, there is a psychiatric residency training program that is affiliated with the Medical College.

The Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals has a reputation for excellence and received The DeWitt C. Baldwin Jr. Award in 2016 by the ACGME as the best large program in the United States. This prestigious award recognizes institutions with accredited residency/fellowship programs that are exemplary in fostering a respectful, supportive environment for medical education and the delivery of patient care, which leads to the personal and professional development of learners. Now MCW is bringing its reputation and resources to where they are most needed.

The Central Wisconsin Psychiatry Residency Program is based in the communities of Central Wisconsin: Wausau, Stevens Point, Rhinelander and Tomah. The direct faculty are the psychiatrists who are based in these communities. Their teaching and supervision will be enriched and enhanced by the resources of the Medical College faculty in Milwaukee. We feel our program offers the best of both worlds of small and big, community and academia.

Our program partners with the communities we serve and provide quality, cost effective and accessible mental health services that maximize the potential of individuals and their families.

This is our mission

  • We are committed to educating exemplary psychiatrists.
  • We enhance our communities by providing outstanding psychiatric care in the rural and urban settings we serve.
  • We respond to the needs of the medically underserved.
  • We strive to create an inclusive learning and work environment that promotes the dignity and respect of our residents, faculty, staff, patients and communities.
  • We strive to be responsive to the changing needs of the communities that we serve.
  • We strive to prepare clinicians to be culturally competent, to provide culturally competent clinical care and to promote culturally responsive research.

If you are interested in the opportunity to serve in areas of need and to draw upon the wealth of resources of the Medical College of Wisconsin; if you would like a big city educational experience and live in a small town with the peace of mind of a good place to raise a family, we invite you to consider the Central Wisconsin Psychiatry Program.
