The Department of Family Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison comprises campuses, programs, faculty and staff across the state of Wisconsin.
For more than 35 years, it has provided Wisconsin with quality clinical care, top-notch medical student and resident education and cutting-edge research.
The department, part of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, is one of the oldest family medicine departments in the nation, with origins dating back to 1970, when family medicine was first designated as a medical specialty. And with about 150 faculty and more than 680 employees, plus an annual budget of over $60 million, it also is one of the largest.
The 2009 edition of U.S. News and World Report ranked the department third among family medicine departments in the country. In 2007, it ranked third in total number of National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants, and sixth in NIH funding dollars among family medicine departments nationwide.
These accomplishments demonstrate a commitment to improving the health of the people of Wisconsin and the nation, a goal fundamentally linked to the mission of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.
