8 Malcom Stephen 20180823 5x7Steve 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.

Dr. Williams is originally from a small community in central Wisconsin. She completed her undergraduate degree at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN and attended medical school at UW School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison, WI. Given the high quality of academics, MCW was a top choice for the match. Outside of work, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with her husband and three children at the Milwaukee County Zoo, the lakefront, and home watching movies. "Coming into residency, I knew I would receive a great education in internal medicine and pediatrics. After four years at MCW, it's the strong, family-like atmosphere between residents and the leadership team that has impressed me the most. Everyone has supported me to complete activities that helped me grow to become the best physician possible. I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve as the chief resident in this amazing program
