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 an Associate 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.
Lindsay Hang, MD - Chief Resident
Lindsay Hang is originally from Grand Rapids, MI where she completed her undergrad at Grand Valley State University. She attended Medical School at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH, where she met her husband, Dustin. They couples matched to MCW and have loved living in Milwaukee with their two dogs ever since! In her free time, you can find Lindsay hiking and camping in the various Wisconsin state parks, biking around town, trying to improve her cooking skills and spending time with Milwaukee friends (and their dogs). Lindsay is thrilled to be staying on as a chief resident for the Med-Peds program. “Being an MCW Med-Peds resident surpassed my expectations in every way. In addition to challenging clinical training with a wide breadth of both pathology and cultural diversity, residents are constantly supported to learn and grow. In addition to vigorous training, my time at MCW was truly marked by outstanding co-residents who have become like family.”
Stephanie Dhein, 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.”
Dana Erickson – Administrative Assistant
Dana was born in Idaho and raised in Wisconsin. She has a daughter and an 18+ yr-old mini dachshund that take up much of her spare time. She’s currently working on completing her degree and loves everything Wisconsin has to offer: biking trails, kayaking, food and festivals, and of course the beaches. She has 20+ years of office management experience, much of that in sales/marketing. She joined the Med-Peds Residency Program in January 2019 and has found her niche in graduate medical education. “The fast-paced environment, the relationships you build along the way, and the amazing people you get to work with are the ‘secrets’ to our success.”
