2016 Annual Meeting of the National Meds-Peds Residents' Association
Medical Students, Residents, and Faculty are encouraged to attend the 2016 Annual Meeting of the National Med-Peds Residents' Association. The meeting will include poster presentations, case presentations, panels, and a keynote speaker on care of the underserved. If you’re a student, it’s a great time to learn more about Med-Peds as a career choice, not to mention meet up with residents and program directors. If you are a resident it is a great place to meet up with other residents from around the country, make new friends, reconnect with those who you met along the interview trail, and learn some new skills.

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!
