Our Residents, In Their Own Words

Our residents are one of the best things about our program. They are collegial, supportive and kind—the type of people you want to work with now and know for a lifetime.

In the videos below, get to know a little about them and why they love training here.

You can also meet the members of each class and find out their training track, where they went to medical school, and their hometown. You may have something in common!

The UW-Madison Community

Our faculty are genuine and invested in residents' success. Here, residents share why they belong in this program and the campus community.

“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.”

Individualized Experiences

We tailor the learning experience to each resident. Here, residents describe how they've customized their schedules to cater to their specific interests.

“I’ve been able to craft a highly individualized experience. I want to practice academic hospital medicine with time in outpatient geriatrics and palliative care. With the program’s help, I’ve found mentors in medical education, geriatrics, ethics and public health.”

Engaged, Kind Mentors

Our residents work with world-class scientists and clinicians. Here, they talk about our kind environment and their comfort with our faculty mentors.

“My mentor took great interest in my career progression, and gave me insight into how to seamlessly balance a career in medicine and activities outside of work essential for well-being. Through regular check-ins, I'm able to navigate the pathway of residency and post-residency plans."
