William Alward, MDWilliam Alward, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor
Division of Allergy, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

What is your primary professional focus in any or all of our mission areas (clinical, research, and/or medical education)?
I have done clinical pulmonary critical care for the past 25 years and continue to enjoy it. I also enjoy teaching.

What drew you to UW-Madison and the Department of Medicine?
Having trained here in the past was a big draw for me and my family. The ability to teach and continue to provide high quality care in pulmonary critical care was also important.

What are you most excited about during your first year with the department in this role?
I'm most excited about getting to know my partners, participating in the education of fellows, residents, and medical students.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I enjoy time traveling playing golf and water sports. We now have a chance to see our grown children more often.
