Congratulations UW Ob-Gyn Residency Program Director Ryan Spencer, MD, and the UW Ob-Gyn Rural Residency Program! Spencer won a Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Grant to disseminate our first-in-the-nation training program to prepare ob-gyn physicians for practice in rural settings to more ob-gyn residency programs nationwide.

“Expanding the Wisconsin Model: Development of a National Workforce Pipeline for Rural OB/GYNs” will collaboratively create a replication manual and framework for other Rural OB/GYN training programs and disseminate it nationally in partnership with the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists.

The Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment is a competitive grant program that fosters public engagement and the advancement of the Wisconsin Idea, the notion that the knowledge and solutions generated at UW–Madison will benefit the people of Wisconsin, the nation and the world.

Amazing work! Kudos to Spencer, the entire residency program, and the education team!
