What do you like best about doing your dermatology training at the University of Wisconsin?
There are numerous things I like about doing my training at UW-Madison, but my two favorite aspects are our strong surgical training and the structure of our continuity clinics. We have excellent surgical instruction and are given consistent hands-on training in surgery early on. Continuity clinics are a major priority and occur more frequently than in many other programs. We have one half day per week as a PGY-2 and two half days per week as a PGY-3 and PGY-4 resident. These frequent clinics have given me robust longitudinal experience in managing many patients with both complex and routine skin diseases. The graduated autonomy structure in our continuity clinics gives me confidence that I will be ready for independent practice as an attending upon graduation.
What do you enjoy about living in Madison?
Madison has been a great place to raise our boys, ages 5 and 2. Madison is full of parks and has some of the best biking trails you’ll find. The Children’s Museum is incredible and an annual family membership is very reasonable. We have also enjoyed being only an hour drive from Wisconsin Dells which is home to numerous waterparks including the largest waterpark in the United States. When we have a babysitter, the downtown area around the capitol and State Street always offer events and many great dining options.
