From the director
"Why?" is at the heart of many questions you ask when embarking on the journey of residency training. Why pursue family medicine? Why train in a Mayo Clinic program? Why join our program in Eau Claire, Wisconsin?
These questions may seem complex, yet they have a simple answer. Why should you do anything? Because doing so complements your own mission for your life; because it resonates with your core purpose, your "why." What is our "why?" Improve care. Improve health. Improve life.
The Mayo Clinic Family Medicine Residency in Eau Claire exists to prepare the next generation of family physicians to improve care, improve health, and improve life in communities both locally and around the world. We train outstanding physicians to practice and lead high-quality, patient-centered, team-based, full-spectrum care. Anywhere.
Here you practice at the forefront of patient care and innovation, in an integrated organization that lives up to our primary value — "the needs of the patient come first." We boldly practice and teach how to improve each patient's experience, improve quality, improve value of care, and improve life at work for care providers while simultaneously looking forward and ensuring we are part of driving the future of health care.
We hand-picked exceptional, energetic — and fun! — faculty members who all share the same core teaching principles. Guidance. Growth. Trust. We guide you in the art and science of medicine, equip and challenge you to grow, and trust you to improve the health and well-being of our patients, families, communities, and health care system.
Our program presents a bold world-class training opportunity in a vibrant community with an abundance of cultural events, outdoor recreational activities, and the natural beauty of northwestern Wisconsin.
We're looking for resident partners who share our "why" to join our program, practice, and community in Eau Claire. If that that interests you, we can't wait to meet you.
