Why did you select the University of Wisconsin Dermatology Residency for your training?
I think that dermatology residency here at the UW is a comprehensive academic program that offers a range of experiences in different settings and subspecialties, as well as opportunities to participate in research, QI projects, etc, and provides a solid foundation for independent clinical practice or further fellowship training after residency. I loved my visiting rotation here as a med student and found the environment to be very friendly and collegial, with a dynamic group of faculty members who are not only accomplished clinicians but also enthusiastic mentors/teachers for residents and medical students. Finally, I think Madison is a lovely place to live and work, and I am happy for the opportunity to return here.
What are some of your favorite activities to do in the Madison area?
There are many fun activities to do in the Madison area (although some of these activities are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic)! Here is a short list (in no particular order): Dane County Farmers Market and Concerts on the Square in summers, visiting the Henry Vilas Zoo, kayaking on Lake Monona, sitting on the Memorial Union Terrace, taking walks in the many parks and green areas in Madison (UW Arboretum, Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Picnic Point, etc.), going to music/theatre performances at the Overture Center and other venues on the UW campus.
