The University of Wisconsin (UW) Primary Care Research
Fellowship is recruiting a new cohort of fellows to start in the
summer of 2023, with one opening available as soon as July 2022.
This post-doctoral research fellowship is administratively housed
within the UW Dept. of Family Medicine and Community Health and led
by faculty from this department as well as from General Internal
Medicine and General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. The
fellowship has been continuously funded by the Health Resources and
Service Administration as a T32 for over 20 years, and typically
supports 2 years of research career training.
Research project completion, published papers, and grant
proposals are the main goals for fellows. The fellowship is open to
physicians or PhD-level health professionals aiming for
research-centered careers who could benefit from 2 years of
protected time, intensive mentorship, and research support. Areas
of scholarly focus should be related to primary care but are
otherwise not restricted. We encourage fellows to aim for NIH
funding, and our trainees have received K-grants, R-grants, or
other prestigious awards.
The Department of Family Medicine and Community Health and the
School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound
commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a
valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we
strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and
promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
Successful candidates must have a medical (MD, DO), doctoral
