About The Family Medicine Residency Program

The Aspirus Family Medicine Residency Program is a 5-5-5 citation-free program. The Program is housed at free-standing Aspirus Wausau Family Medicine Clinic, steps away from the system flagship, Aspirus Wausau Hospital, and many specialty practices. Residents benefit from seeing a wide range of patients including rural, transgender, HIV positive, addiction medicine and pre-natal through geriatrics in a variety of patient care settings. Graduates successfully establish practices as hospitalists, outpatient and walk-in physicians – often staying in the Aspirus system.

In addition to providing traditional training, the Program prides itself on providing unique experiences to learners as evidenced by recently receiving an NRMP exception for an innovative curriculum allowing a Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW)-Central Wisconsin student to match early into the Program and start establishing an outpatient panel at the residency clinic as a medical student. A rural training track, a medically assisted treatment program, and integrated behavioral health care model are also in development. The Program also partners with MCW Psychiatry Residents to provide in-patient medicine training.

Our program recently switched its accreditation sponsorship from the University of Wisconsin to WiNC (Wisconsin Northern and Central) Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium. The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the Medical College of Wisconsin are both academic partners of the WiNC GME Consortium, expanding the faculty and resources available to the Aspirus Wausau Family Medicine Residency Program.
