Med-Peds Program Leadership
Heather Toth, MD - Program Director
Dr. Toth received her medical degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Medical School and joined the Internal Medicine-Pediatrics combined residency program at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) in Milwaukee in 2001. During residency, Dr. Toth served as President for the National Med-Peds Residents' Association (NMPRA) and enjoyed working with other Med-Peds physicians across the nation. Dr. Toth served an additional year as a 5th year Chief Resident for the Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program at MCW. Since then, Dr. Toth has remained at the Medical College of Wisconsin in both the Department of Medicine and the Department of Pediatrics as a Professor and a Hospitalist for Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. "I truly enjoy my career and feel that Med-Peds is well-suited for optimal patient care and endless opportunities!"
Steve Malcom, MD - Associate Program Director
Dr. Malcom was born in Chicago, a South Sider and lifelong White Sox fan. He completed his undergraduate education at Knox College in Galesburg, IL. He attended medical school at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Looking for a place with excellent training in an academic setting as well as a supportive community for his family, Dr. Malcom went from knowing very little about MCW in the interview season of 2006 to making the program his top choice on Match Day 2007. Dr. Malcom's four years as a med-peds resident and his time as Chief Resident confirmed his initial impression of the program. "At MCW, I learned from with dedicated physicians who are leaders in primary care as well as sub-specialties in both internal medicine and pediatrics. Despite these credentials, the faculty as a group are very down-to-earth. They take the time to ask how I am doing, as well as my wife and children. MCW has a culture that emphasizes professional improvement balanced with personal fulfillment." Since 2012, Dr. Malcom has worked as a Med-Peds primary care physician with a practice emphasis in the care of Special Needs patients.
Victor Redmon, MD - Chief Resident
Dr. Redmon grew up in Tallahassee, FL, which is the state capitol and located in the middle of the FL panhandle. He completed his undergraduate degree at the Florida A&M University, and then attended the Medical College of Wisconsin, in which he earned his MD. Dr. Redmon also completed residency training at the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals. He is married to his wife, Danielle, and they have one son, Samuel. Outside of work, Victor enjoys spending time with his family and friends, exercise, and frequenting the local cuisines and breweries. Victor is overjoyed to be the Med-Peds chief resident. “I have been truly blessed to be surrounded by so many incredible people. The MCW Med-Peds program attracts people who care about their colleagues, patients, communities and families. I always feel like I am surrounded by family, even though my closest blood relatives are about 1000 miles away. Our co-residents and team leadership continually support us and celebrate our accomplishments as we become better clinicians and I think better humans as well. It is my true honor to serve as chief resident for the MCW Med-Peds residency.
Stephanie Hetland, MA - Program Coordinator
Stephanie was born and raised in a small town in Northeastern Wisconsin. She completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and later a Master’s Degree in Counseling in Higher Education from Lakeland University. Before coming to the Department of Pediatrics, Stephanie spent four years at the Cancer Center working in research and grants administration, but had always found herself wanting to get back into education! In her free time you can find Stephanie playing pickleball, going on boat rides, cooking, spending time with friends and family, and enjoying the lake where her and her husband met! “I’ve truly enjoyed all of my time here at MCW! The faculty, fellows, residents, and staff have all been amazing in creating a warm and collaborative environment that allows everyone to grow both personally and professionally.”
