What is WCRGME?

The Wisconsin Collaborative for Rural Graduate Medical Education (WCRGME) was established to address the shortage of rural primary care physicians through the expansion of graduate medical education (GME). It is a network of organizations developing and maintaining rural residency rotations, rural training track residency programs, and rural fellowships. Technical assistance, training, networking, and marketing of rural training opportunities are available. It is a program of the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative (RWHC) which is supported by a state funded grant through the Wisconsin Rural Physicians Residency Assistance Program (WRPRAP).
