Pediatric Hospitalist, Children’s Wisconsin
mweisger@mcw.edu

Dr. Weisgerber received his undergraduate degree from Marquette University. He received his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin. He completed his pediatric residency at the Medical College of Georgia. He then returned to Milwaukee to complete a fellowship in general academic pediatrics and master's degree in epidemiology from the Medical College of Wisconsin. Following fellowship he joined the department of pediatrics faculty as a pediatric hospitalist in 2004. He was an associate director of the pediatric residency program from 2008-2012 before becoming the program director in 2012.

Dr. Weisgerber is an avid sports fan and he enjoys playing, coaching, and spectating. The only teams he likes more than Marquette are his daughters' soccer teams. He enjoys the diversity of patients and conditions he sees as a hospitalist and is active in many aspects of medical education – from administration to teaching on the wards to educational research. "I love having three jobs in one – being a hospitalist, a clinician-educator and a Program Director! The people here at MCW are fantastic – whether it is the patients, the faculty, the nurses, the students, the fellows, the administrative staff – and of course the residents. I can't imagine being anywhere else."

Pediatric Hospitalist, Children's Wisconsin
dhahn@mcw.edu

She completed her pediatric residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin followed by a year as chief resident. After her chief year, she joined the pediatric faculty at the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2013, practicing pediatric hospital medicine at the Children’s Wisconsin. Being a pediatric hospitalist has allowed her to pursue her clinical goals of caring for hospitalized children, and it has also given her the opportunity to keep her passion for education close to her heart, as she continues to work closely with residents both clinically and in various academic pursuits. As such, she was excited to join the medical education team as associate program director in 2016. Her specific medical education interests include handoffs and documentation improvement. Although she was born and raised in rural Northern Wisconsin, she has grown to love the Milwaukee area and has now enthusiastically called it her home for over 10 years. Outside of medicine, she enjoys spending time with her husband and three sons, as well as cheering for her sons at their many soccer games, reading, music, travel, and Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, and Notre Dame sports.

She thoroughly enjoyed her time as chief resident being involved with medical education and was thrilled to return to Med Ed as an associate program director in 2015.

Gutzeit JonathonJohn Gutzeit, MD, MPH
jgutzeit@mcw.edu

Dr. Gutzeit was born and raised right here in Milwaukee. He then moved to St. Louis, receiving his BA, MPH, and MD from St. Louis University where he rowed for the Bilikens – ROLL BILLS! While interviewing for residency, Jon found the draw of being close to family while training at a large free-standing children’s hospital too much to resist. “I spent an away rotation in the CHW ER as a medical student and was impressed by the variety of patients seen and the close relationships between the residents.” When not at work, Jon enjoys all manner of exercise, cheering on the Bucks and Brewers, collecting socks (and shoes), and spending time with family and friends. After chief year, he plans to continue his medical education as a Critical Care fellow.

Mason SadieSadie Mason. MD
smason@mcw.edu

Dr. Mason spent her elementary school years bouncing around the West Coast before moving to Peachtree City, Georgia, as a teen. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia – GO DAWGS! – and her medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia. During residency interviews, she fell in love with Milwaukee and the MCW program: “I remember interviewing – the same day as my co-chief, Dr. Laura Goeser! – and thinking ‘I could really fit in here.’” She has found CHW to be an incredible place to train, full of supportive faculty and co-residents who turned into forever friends. Outside of the hospital, Sadie enjoys playing Zoom Yahtzee with her family, reading, walking along the river and lake, and checking out new breweries and restaurants around the city. Following her chief year, she plans to pursue fellowship in Hematology/Oncology.

Goeser Laura 2Laura Goeser, MD
lgoeser@mcw.edu

Dr. Goeser was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin and grew up in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin, pursued IBD research at the University of North Carolina before realizing that she was far too extroverted to be in a laboratory, and received her medical degree from Midwestern University in Illinois. As a lifelong athlete and Wisconsin sports fan, she was so happy to come back to Milwaukee and recently purchased a home within walking distance of Fiserv Forum. (Go Bucks!) She was truly thrilled with matching at MCW. "Interviewing left me with a feeling of an incredibly fun, supportive learning environment that gives learners the opportunity to pursue any career in pediatrics - all while living in a really great up-and-coming city!" In her free time, she loves playing almost any recreational sport, kayaking on the river, visiting the great restaurants and breweries, collecting sneakers (specifically Jordans), attending Bucks, Brewers, Badgers and Packers games, and hiking along the many beautiful trails with her wife and 2 pugs (Chicken and Nugget.) After chief residency, she will be staying at MCW to pursue another residency (#foreverintraining) in Dermatology with the goal to practice Pediatric Dermatology in the future.
