HealthPartners Residency Program to Increase Family Medicine Physicians in Rural Northwest Wisconsin Areas

A new family medicine residency program in the St. Croix Valley is designed to increase the number of physicians who practice in rural and underserved areas of Wisconsin. The program, called the Methodist Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program Rural Training Track, is administered by HealthPartners Institute for Education and Research, and is expected to add an additional physician to a northwestern Wisconsin region every year beginning in 2021.
