Welcome to our Program!

heather-tothThank 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 a 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!

Living and Learning in Milwaukee

Milwaukee is one of the Midwest’s best-kept secrets and a prime location for the Medical College of Wisconsin’s main campus. A one-of-a-kind city with a vibrant and diverse culture, this charming, yet metropolitan must-see is just 90 minutes north of Chicago and nestled on the coast of Lake Michigan. Whether you’re catching a show at Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival, immersing yourself in the old world charm of the Historic Third Ward or taking in the sights and sounds of one of the many cafés, beer gardens or restaurants that line the city’s riverbank and shoreline, Milwaukee never disappoints. Find out why MCW students, faculty and employees take pride in calling Milwaukee home.
