Gundersen Boscobel welcomes Family Medicine resident

Gundersen Health System has a long history (dating back to 1955) of excellent graduate medical education in multiple specialties.

"Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics is excited to carry on that tradition by hosting Family Medicine resident Laura Jacobson, MD, for her one-month rural residency rotation," says Mandy Pettit, director of clinics, Gundersen Boscobel. "It's a win-win as patients get excellent care while residents gain real-world experience under the supervision of seasoned medical doctors."

Before coming to Gundersen for her Family Medicine residency, Dr. Jacobson received her medical degree from the Chicago Medical School, part of the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where she also played Division III soccer. 

According to Paul Klas, MD, medical director, Gundersen Family Medicine Residency Clinic, the Family Medicine Residency offers patients a great experience by caring for patients of any age needing primary care services, including:

  • Annual checkups and preventive care
  • Care for your baby from birth, including well baby and pediatric visits and immunizations
  • School and sports physicals
  • Care for chronic health conditions
  • Care when you are ill or injured

The Family Medicine Residency Program and Clinic are part of Gundersen's continuing efforts to address the need for more primary care physicians, especially in rural clinics and hospitals throughout the Tri-state Region.
