Adam Hadro, MD
PGY-IV Orthopaedic Surgery Resident
Undergraduate: St. Olaf College
Why I chose MCW: There were multiple reasons why I chose MCW for my Orthopedic residency. As a medical student, I was given the advice to watch the 5th year residents at each institution and determine which I would most like to emulate and that is the program I should choose. Throughout my away rotations and interviews, I felt that MCW best prepared their graduates to operate and run a busy orthopedic practice, so it was an easy decision for me.
What MCW has to offer a candidate: Most importantly MCW has a comprehensive training experience that prepares residents to care for all types of orthopedic patients. Whether that be general orthopedics, joints, oncology, or pediatrics, MCW graduates have the skills necessary to care for these patients. MCW also offers faculty that are willing to invest and support residents in all aspects of our training. It was important for me to join a residency that values each resident’s opinion and allows residents to craft their own experiences and MCW does just that.
What I like about living in Milwaukee: When I moved to Milwaukee for medical school originally, I knew little beyond it has an over-abundance of beer. Since then I have found that Milwaukee does indeed have an abundance of beer but also has so much more to offer. In general, it has all the amenities that Chicago can offer without the traffic. Restaurants, Lake Michigan, culture, sports, and so much more.
