Rural, yet close
to metro areas

East of the St. Croix river, Amery and New Richmond nestle in rural western Wisconsin. Imagine your family medicine residency near rich farmland, plentiful parks and trails and a supportive community. And the vibrant Minneapolis-St Paul metro area is within a 60-minute drive.

More opportunities in clinics and hospitals

You’ll train at three separate hospitals in your residency. All of them are part of the HealthPartners care group, an award-winning integrated health care system.

Methodist Hospital

Amery Hospital & Clinic

Westfields Hospital & Clinic

Family-oriented and safe communities

Welcome to small town living.  New Richmond and Amery have highly rated school districts combining personalized attention with strong academics. Childcare facilities and fitness centers are readily available. Both counties have top ratings for community health measures, including life expectancy, social support and poverty rates.

The chance to get really hands-on

With only one or two residents at each rural site, you will work closely with attendings in the clinics, hospitals and emergency rooms

Have work-life balance

As a welcomed member of the community, you will learn the unique skills for a sustainable small-town family medicine practice from experienced mentors. Enjoy a rich rural life!
