The UW-Madison Community

“Coming from a small community medical school, I did not know what to expect from an academic institution.

I have been so happy with the breadth of conditions I have seen, the emphasis on learning (especially with our X+Y+Z system), and the overall kindness of my fellow residents and staff despite working in a rigorous and high-stakes environment.”

—Marley Foertsch, MD, PGY-2

Individualized Experiences

“I’ve been able to craft a highly individualized experience based on my interests. I want to practice academic hospital medicine with time also spent in outpatient geriatrics and palliative care services.

With the program’s help, I’ve found project mentors in medical education, geriatrics, ethics, and public health.”

—David Deemer, MD, PGY-2

Engaged, Kind Mentors

“My mentor took great interest in my career progression, and gave me more insight into how to seamlessly balance pursuing a career in medicine and engaging in activities outside of work essential for well-being.

Through regular check-ins, I am able to navigate the pathway of residency and post-residency plans."

—Quarshie Glover, MD, PGY-2
