Why did I choose to do my fellowship with the Medical College of WI? I greatly value a supportive environment. Given my experience in the residency program here, I knew this fellowship program would be an excellent fit. The attendings, neonatal nurse practitioners, and nurses are some of the best people that I know, and I love coming in to work each day beside them to learn. We see a wide breadth of patients, from the typical preterm infant to those with rare congenital anomalies, so I knew I would graduate as an excellent and prepared clinician. I also have loved living in and experiencing the culture of Milwaukee, and as a bonus, it is close to my family!

Why did I choose to do my fellowship with the Medical College of WI? I had a great interview day experience and everyone from the faculty to the fellows were genuine, warm-hearted people who just wanted you to succeed. CHW is a level IV NICU which draws from a wide population base and hence we get to see a wide variety of pathologies in addition to routine prematurity. Plus, we have a very active neonatal transport service which also drew me to this program. The fellows get to choose their research projects and there is a good mix of basic science and clinical research which was also a bonus point. Milwaukee is such a fun and affordable city to live in and very close to Chicago, and hence I could not have asked for more.

Why did I choose to do my fellowship with the Medical College of WI? As a resident, I enjoyed the wide variety of patients and acuity at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin NICU and knew it would be a good place to complete my fellowship training. The attendings, neonatal nurse practitioners and nurses I had worked with were supportive of fellow learning opportunities. Graduating fellows expressed how prepared they felt upon leaving fellowship and that they really enjoyed the opportunities at MCW - specifically going on transports. Given my interest in fetal diagnosis and prenatal counseling, our multidisciplinary Fetal Concerns Center also factored in my decision to stay at MCW.

Why did I choose to do my fellowship at MCW? I considered many factors while creating my fellowship rank-list and ultimately choosing MCW. MCW offers a moderate-sized program with a fellow-driven level IV NICU. Throughout my interview day (and now throughout my workdays), I appreciated the friendships and teamwork amongst fellows, NNPs, and nurses. I also valued finding a program that has the resources available for me to build the foundation for the career that I want; for example, MCW offers opportunities for furthering education via master's programs, mentors in various areas of research (both in the department and across the hospital/university system), and a variety of fetal diagnoses and pathology.
