MONROE - Monroe Clinic will receive $750,000 over the next three years in a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to implement a family medicine residency program. "Once the program receives accreditation this fall, it will be the first new, family medicine residency in Wisconsin in more than 20 years," said Lori Rodefeld, residency coordinator of Monroe Clinic. It will also be the first rural training track residency program in southern Wisconsin.
