Dr. Weisgerber received his undergraduate degree from Marquette University. He received his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin.

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."

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.

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.

Mchiu@mcw.edu 

Dr. Chiu is originally from Canada, but has moved around all her life #agirlhasnohome.  She received her undergraduate degree from Tulane University.  She worked in a charter school in New Orleans before trading in her holiday themed outfits for a white coat when she pursued her medical degree from the Tulane University School of Medicine.  After medical school, she was excited to find a new home in Milwaukee for her pediatrics residency.  "I loved MCW the moment I stepped foot on campus.  Everybody was so nice and the medical education team was clearly dedicated to resident learning and growth.  The residents were laid back, outgoing, and funny."  Outside of the hospital, she loves to enjoy all that Milwaukee has to offer including kayaking, camping, hiking, and exploring the different festivals that are ongoing throughout the summer and fall.

He received his undergraduate degreen from the University of New Mexico, where he also received his medical degree. As a life-long inhabitant of generally warm climates, he fell in love with the Midwest during interviews. "My first impression of MCW was at the interview dinner where the residents were excited to work together and were planning to spend time outside of the hospital. Everyone seemed to really like each other both professionally and personally." When not at work, he likes reading, exploring Milwaukee and the surrounding suburbs, and particularly enjoys attending concerts put on by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra - Russian nights are especially wonderful. After chief residency, he plans to continue to explore his love of the kidney as a nephrology fellow.

I remember thinking 'I want to feel just as composed and knowledgeable as they are at the end of my training.' " After chief residency, she hopes to pursue a fellowship & career in hospital medicine. In her free time, Lauren loves throwing frisbees for her mutt, hiking to find good views, night and day camping, and watching horror movies
