Our programs are very flexible and well balanced in terms of inpatient and ambulatory care responsibilities! The Milwaukee PGY1 program (four spots) allows residents to select the amount of time they would like to spend in required and elective rotations in order to customize their year. PGY2 programs in Milwaukee include Infectious Diseases, Psychiatry, Internal Medicine, and Medication Use Safety and Policy.

Please note: The Milwaukee VA will not be attending the virtual showcase event at ASHP Midyear meeting in December 2021. Instead, we will be hosting virtual open house events! This is an opportunity for you to meet residency program directors and current residents prior to interviews. Additionally, we are planning that all residency interviews will be virtual in 2022 (using WebEx platform).
