Residency & Fellowship Programs
Between towering bluffs and the mighty Mississippi River, La Crosse, Wis., is a picturesque backdrop for outdoor enthusiasts, craft beer lovers, those who seek arts and culture, and everyone in between.
You will find our residency and fellowship programs offer a personalized educational experience, along with some great perks and a deep connection to Gundersen's purpose and priorities.
Why choose Gundersen for your residency or fellowship
You have a chance to evaluate all patients, from common ailments to complex medical problems, along with developing problem-solving skills and expanding your knowledge base and management skills.
Added program value: All Gundersen clinicians contribute to teaching. Teaching is in our mission and exemplified in our corporate vision to enrich every life we touch. The direct teaching may occur at the side of the patient, in classrooms, and via role modeling. Indirect support is provided when clinicians provide clinic or hospital coverage while their colleagues are teaching; supporting multidisciplinary teaching within their section or department; and contributing to the culture of education through continuous quality improvement.
Competitive wages and benefits are a must. But Gundersen provides you so much more. Affordable housing within walking distance of where you will practice and learn on our main campus in La Crosse, Wis. builds community and camaraderie among your peers. (Ask us about availability.) Kids and significant others are welcome, too!
Low learner-to-teacher ratios, direct access to program directors, program coordinators and support staff, and attention to your own health and well-being, including home call, will help you succeed.
Added program value: Gundersen is one of 10 healthcare organizations nationwide chosen to participate in the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Pursuing Excellence in Clinical Learning Environments, a national learning collaborative focused on engaging residents and fellows in patient safety.
We also want to celebrate with you and honor your achievements. Our annual holiday party and graduation are ways we annually pause, bond and grow as a team.
