A Message from Our Chief Residents:
Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Pediatrics Residency Program! We are excited to tell you about the program we love.
Throughout our three years of residency, we developed amazing relationships with our co-residents, the program’s directors and Department of Pediatrics faculty. This phenomenal group of people became our second family and we are thrilled and honored to continue working with them as chief residents.
Our program and faculty members take pride in resident education and will train you to become a well-rounded pediatrician, no matter which specialty you ultimately pursue. Whether it is learning more about your personal or professional interests, faculty take the time to get to know you so that they may better inform your individual training. We aim to foster the growth of residents both individually and collectively as strong members of the healthcare team.
The varying demographics of Madison and rural Wisconsin provides us with unique patient populations and opportunities to learn how to manage a broad range of diseases. We are fortunate to have a robust Global Health Track that enhances resident education and supports both local and global child health. Our residency advocacy group engages all members of our department. Since our program is located in the state capital, we also have the unique ability to advocate for our patients with local legislators.
The University of Wisconsin Pediatrics Residency program not only trains you to be a great pediatrician, but is also housed in a GREAT city! We lovingly refer to Madison as a “small town city” – it has all the amenities of a large, diverse city while still maintaining a small town feel. Whether you’re into live music, sporting events, good restaurants, or outdoor activities, Madison has it all.
Thank you for your interest in our program. We look forward to meeting you soon.
