The strength of any residency program rests with the strength of its leadership and faculty. The faculty leadership and members have devoted their professional careers to the education of residents and medical students. All 10 of our core General Internal Medicine faculty and most all of our large number of subspecialty faculty members hold clinical appointments with the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.

Research, scholarly activity and quality improvement are vital to the health of the learning environment. The campus is proud of the academic accomplishments of its faculty, residents and fellows as evidenced by many yearly publications and national presentations.
