MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - When it comes to producing medical school graduates who go into family practice, the University of Wisconsin ranks towards the top.

According to a report from the American Academy of Family Physicians over a three-year period, one in six UW medical grads – roughly 16 percent -  entered family practice.

That’s good enough for a 9th-place ranking among other medical schools across the country.

Experts say the latest ranking is proof that the state’s effort to expand family practice doctors, with the help of state and federal programs, is working.
