General Internal Medicine Primary Care Program
About the Primary Care Program
As an academic medical center, we are committed to training the next generation of internal medicine specialists. Our clinic incorporates learners of all levels, including medical students and residents, advanced practice nursing and physician assistant students, and pharmacy students and residents. Many of our faculty are actively involved in research projects and contribute to evolving medical knowledge, which makes academic medicine different.
Message from Our Section Chief
Welcome to the Section of Primary Care Internal Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin!
This is an exciting time as we draw upon a long-standing legacy of excellence and innovation. As our systems grow, and our patients present with increasing complexity, it is academic general internists, who are well positioned to manage their care. Health equity has never been more important, and our clinic is innovative, with services that reach out to our most marginalized populations to ensure everyone gets great health care. Our Complex Care Program, using community health workers, is one way we reach out to communities where there are health disparities to “touch them where they are”. We maintain a particular focus on educating the next generation of clinicians, while we contribute to medical knowledge through research.
I invite you to review our website, where you will find a remarkable collection of people and programs - many of whom are leaders in healthcare education, quality and safety, clinical operations, and research.
If you are interested in learning more, I would love to hear from you.
