Gundersen Health System offers two housing complexes for residents and fellows. We encourage strong relationships between residents and fellows in and out of the medical center. Camaraderie created by living in a community with a blend of residents/fellows creates a bond and respect that translates into superior patient care.
West Housing Complex
Fifty town homes are located on the immediate medical center grounds. Rent for these town homes is $745 per month. All utilities including heat, electricity, water, basic cable, and high-speed internet are paid for by the medical center. The town homes can be furnished, semi-furnished, or unfurnished. Each town home has a living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry area with individual washers and dryers, two bedrooms, full bathroom, and study/den. All are individually heated and air-conditioned. Garden space is also available.

All utilities including heat, electricity, water, basic cable, and high-speed internet are paid for by the medical center. The town homes can be furnished, semi-furnished, or unfurnished. Each town home has a living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry area with individual washers and dryers, two bedrooms, one full bathroom, and one-half bath. All are individually heated and air-conditioned. There is no garden space at this site, but gardening is available in the West Housing Complex. Pets are not allowed in this housing complex.
Gundersen's nationally recognized residency and fellowship programs currently provide 84 positions, but due to the high number of very well qualified applicants the programs are being expanded.
"We will have 98 positions for the 2019-2020 academic year, with a further increase in positions to follow the next two academic years," states Greg Thompson, MD, director of Medical Education. "Our residents and fellows provide patient care in many fields of medicines and for patients of all ages. We're pleased to have more medical residents and their families make Gundersen their home for the duration of their residency."
Although available, we realize that people may choose to live off campus for a variety of reasons, including family size, pets, and the desire to own a home.
