Internal Medicine-Pediatrics
Residency Program Welcome

Heather Toth, MDThank you for your interest in our Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program. We are very excited and proud of our program and would like to welcome you to our website to learn more about us!
I received my medical degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Medical School and joined our Internal Medicine-Pediatrics combined residency program at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee in 2001. During residency, I served as President for the National Med-Peds Residents' Association (NMPRA) and enjoyed working with other Med-Peds physicians across the nation. I served an additional year as a 5th year Chief Resident for the Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program. Since then, I am honored to remain at the Medical College of Wisconsin in both the Department of Medicine and the Department of Pediatrics as an Associate Professor and a Hospitalist for Medicine and Pediatrics. I truly enjoy my career and feel that Med-Peds is well-suited for optimal patient care and endless opportunities!
Graduates from our program have a wealth of careers including Med-Peds primary care, subspecialty care and Med-Peds hospitalists with practices across the nation. The training at the Medical College of Wisconsin is founded by strong departments in both Medicine and Pediatrics. This academic center offers a diverse experience, while focusing on the necessary tools for future careers whether primary or subspecialty care pathways are chosen.
Our residents achieve success in patient care, education and research, and I feel that the Medical College of Wisconsin's Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program provides exceptional education and outstanding training! Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
