Current Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellows
Third Year Fellows
Rajmohan Dharmaraj, MD
"As I am completing my first year at MCW Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship program, I realize that I have undergone a wonderful journey full of rich educational and clinical experiences. Every day of my fellowship, I have learned something new and the program offers a professional work environment with a challenging and diverse patient population. The support from staff and faculty is excellent. The staff tries to help in the learning experience in any way they can. The faculty shares their knowledge and ideas freely, and will go out of their way to help you on any occasion. Life outside the hospital is also worth mentioning. Milwaukee is the type of city that is big enough to have a bit of everything but small enough to still feel like you are at home. God has been incredibly gracious in giving me an opportunity to train at MCW and I would highly recommend this program to any resident considering a career in pediatric gastroenterology."

"Medical College of Wisconsin Pediatric Gastroenterology is a highly evolved and structured training program. It is designed to not only provide excellent clinical and research training but, more importantly, has established itself as a center that fosters the development and success of academic pediatric gastroenterologists. Here at MCW, we have a unique opportunity to be trained by world leaders in their respective fields. One-on-one interaction with these experts and their approachability and willingness to help and support us is outstanding. Being a tertiary referral center, MCW attracts patients with relatively uncommon diseases, helping us to cultivate a rich clinical experience during fellowship. I strongly recommend MCW for fellowship training to have an opportunity to work with a wonderful team."
Second Year Fellows
Rachel Dunn, MD
"Having initially completed my pediatric residency at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, I knew that the Pediatric Gastroenterology program at CHW was where I wanted to complete my training. Going through my first year of fellowship, I relied on the excellent advice and leadership from my co-fellows and always felt that I was working as part of a team. The faculty here at CHW continue to be leaders in their fields as well as outstanding mentors and educators. Not only do I love my program, I greatly enjoy living in the city of Milwaukee for the past 4 years. I can't imagine anywhere else I want to be at this time in my life."
Julia Fritz, MD
"With my first year of fellowship at Medical College of Wisconsin coming to an end, I can confidently say that it is a great place to train in pediatric gastroenterology. When I was coming to MCW, I was excited about the possibilities of working in such an accomplished division and the diversity of patients that I would see at a larger institution such as Children’s, but was nervous about whether I would get the personalized teaching and close working environment that I had come to love in residency. Over the past year I have realized that the camaraderie and individualized teaching is what I appreciate most about the MCW program. Working side by side with experts in the field who are excited to share their experience with me has allowed me to learn more than I thought possible in a single year. Equally impressive has been their support and friendship, not only when it gets busy, but starting on day 1 as I worked to get settled in a new city and hospital. Throughout MCW this camaraderie is present and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the nurses, dieticians, staff, and other service teams that we work with on a daily basis. I’m also happy to say that my excitement about the possibilities available at MCW has not been let down. From the vast array of research opportunities (and infectiously enthusiastic mentors that come with them) to the range of pathology in our patients, the variety we encounter enriches our education enormously.
When looking at fellowships it’s important to find the right fit. For me, MCW has provided a supportive teaching environment in which I could become confident in my clinical and procedural skills, a diversity of patients and mentors to help me find my passion within pediatric GI, and faculty who are not only leaders in the pediatric GI but push me to learn more each and every day. I couldn’t have asked for a better fit."
