Peter Marogil, DO

Assistant Clinical Professor   
Cardiovascular Medicine

What is your primary professional focus as it relates to our mission areas (clinical, research and/or medical education)?   
My primary focus is on the management of patients with advanced heart failure including cardiac transplantation and durable mechanical circulatory support devices. My research focus involves the management of cardiogenic shock and developing systems of care to facilitate timely diagnosis and treatment of shock.

What drew you to UW–Madison and the Department of Medicine?    
The DOM offers a supportive and collaborative environment and is comprised of exceptional faculty. I am able to pursue all of my interests from clinical medicine to research and medical education. Madison is also an incredible place to live with no shortage of outdoor activities!

What are you most excited about during your first year with the department in this role?    
I am looking forward to growing as a clinician and working alongside my colleagues and trainees to care for patients. I am also excited to help further develop a shock team to aid in the management of acutely ill complex patients.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?   
I enjoy being active and outdoors, especially biking and hiking.

Favorite piece of advice from a mentor or inspiring figure in your life?   
It's ok to not know the answer, and to ask for help when you need it.
