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.
