Half of your time is protected for administrative and leadership duties and half is supervising residents in clinic or seeing patients directly. Although focused on rural practice, our primary training sites are not strictly rural areas themselves. Green Bay and the Fox Cities of Northeastern Wisconsin are small to medium sized cities with access to many "big city" experiences (including NFL football, concerts, theater and more) without the downsides of high costs-of-living and traffic. These areas also provide almost immediate access to the great outdoors. Biking, hunting, fishing, camping, boating and hiking will be just minutes, if not steps (depending on where you decide to live) from your home. These areas are affordable, safe, family friendly, and fun. Green Bay is 115 miles north of Milwaukee, WI. Work Schedule: Full Time
