Inaugural Classes of Central and Northeastern Wisconsin Psychiatry Residents Graduate, Plan to Practice in Region
Milwaukee, May 26, 2021 – The seven members of the inaugural classes of the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) psychiatry residency programs in central and northeastern Wisconsin will graduate this spring and go on to practice in the region. Six will stay in Wisconsin and one will serve in rural Iowa just across the border:
- Amy Butterworth, MD: St. Mary’s, Ascension, Rhinelander, Wisconsin
- Daniel Hoppe, MD: North Central Health Care, Wausau, Wisconsin
- Andrew Kordus, DO: Winnebago Mental Health Institute, Oshkosh, Wisconsin
- Brooke Mastroianni, MD: Continued training, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship, Milwaukee
- Ryan Stever, MD: Gundersen Health System, Lansing, Iowa
- Waqas Yasin, MD: North Central Health Care, Wausau
- Albina Zimany, MD: Continued training, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship, Milwaukee
Both the Central Wisconsin Psychiatry and the Northeastern Wisconsin Psychiatry Residency Programs commenced summer 2017 and now have a total of 28 residents between them.
With the two new residency programs filled, MCW has been able to increase the number of training psychiatrists in Wisconsin by more than 40 percent.
“Aspiring physicians and psychiatrists who complete residency in Wisconsin have about a 70 percent chance of remaining in the state to practice medicine,” said Joseph E. Kerschner, MD, Provost and Executive Vice President; Dean of the School of Medicine, MCW. “This inaugural class of residents is really fulfilling the vision of why we have the regional campuses and the difference they can make in the overall health of Wisconsin. Having these new psychiatrists stay in our state will fundamentally change access to mental healthcare in these regions.”
