  • University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health

I chose a career in Family Medicine because it allows me to care for all members of a community and to develop and maintain genuine relationships with patients throughout their lifetime. Training at the Aurora Family Medicine Residency Program gives me the privilege of serving my home community while learning from a group of passionate, intelligent and caring Family Physicians. My husband and two children are the joy of my life and we enjoy cooking, watching movies, and staying active together. I also love dancing and choreography. After the adventure of residency I plan to continue serving families in Milwaukee.  I hope to practice full spectrum Family Medicine, with an emphasis on caring for the underserved members of our community.

I chose Family Medicine because I enjoy treating patients as a whole including the psychosocial aspects. I chose St. Luke's because of the emphasis on integrative medicine- another interest of mine. A fun fact about me: I got married in Zambia this June. I am a National Health Service Corps scholar, so in the future I plan to work in an urban underserved location, and would love to stay in Milwaukee.

I chose Family Medicine for the unique ability to treat entire families for a variety of medical conditions as they enter different stages of life.  I chose to continue my training at Aurora St. Luke's Family Medicine because it is a dually accredited program with a strong, challenging curriculum and supportive faculty and residents. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  I enjoy hiking, traveling, photography and following Wisconsin sports. After completing my residency, I plan to practice full spectrum Family Medicine in Wisconsin.

  • Loyola Stritch School of Medicine 

As a primary care physician my goal is to empower my patients to become active participants in their health by providing them with exceptional education and guidance.  Family practice is not only the specialty best suited for this, but also offers the flexibility and variety in medicine that other specialties don't. Aurora's Family Medicine program provides much of these same benefits and the collaboration among faculty and staff was incredibly encouraging as an outsider.  The ability for residents to pursue individual goals with flexibility and support, while also maintaining autonomy creates opportunities for growth that really motivate me. Currently, my interests in Family Medicine are broad, but eventually I would like to focus on women's health and integrative medicine.  I strongly believe that Aurora's curriculum in integrative medicine will provide a strong foundation for my long-term goals.
Personally, I am looking forward to returning home to Milwaukee to be closer to family and friends.  It's time to dust off my Brewer's hat!

  • Hometown: Born in Milwaukee, WI; grew up in Sheboygan, WI
  • UW - Milwaukee, BS in Biology

I chose Family Medicine for the ability to build long lasting relationships, being able to care for individuals and families, having a variety of experiences, and working as an advocate for my patients. I had a very positive experience here at the Aurora Family Medicine program when doing a rotation during my fourth year. I enjoyed the cooperative as well as supportive environment between the residents, faculty, and other health care professionals. My future career goals include working with underserved populations in some way, possibly working at a federally qualified health center. I am very family oriented and I enjoy spending time with my husband and my 2 year old daughter. I also love reading, music, and going to festivals and plays.

  • Hometown: Dodgeville, WI
  • UW - Madison, Bachelor of Science in Biology and Sociology
  • Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine

I chose Family Medicine because I love the variety of patients and the variety of issues that bring patients to the clinic. I also love the versatility of Family Medicine and that it can lead to many different life paths in the future. My favorite part of Family Medicine though is really getting to know patients and their families, and forming a good working relationship with them. I chose Aurora St. Luke's because of the very friendly staff and residents. I felt like they were team I would be able to work well with and learn from. I also chose Aurora St. Luke's because I think that it will give me a population of patients with a diverse set of issues so that I can get the most comprehensive education possible and prepare me best for the future. The fact that Aurora St. Luke's is in Milwaukee is only a bonus, as it a great city filled with lots of fun activities to do, and is large enough to have just about anything you want, but small enough that it still feels friendly. A unique fact about me is that one time while backpacking in Upper Peninsula of Michigan, my campsite was raided by a bear. After some failed attempts to scare away the bear who was happily enjoying our jelly, we were forced to run away barefoot in our pajamas and watch him finish our breakfast from a safe distance away. In the future I hope to provide full spectrum care including OB care in a smaller more rural community of WI.

  • Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine

I grew up in a small town in Washington State where my family grows pears for a living. We had a close relationship with our family doctor while I was growing up, and it definitely influenced my decision to go into family practice. I want to be a physician that interacts with a variety of patients from all age groups, reaches out to the community and develops lasting relationships with my patients; I feel that becoming a primary care doctor will fulfill that goal. I absolutely loved my visit to Aurora's program, and the opportunity to have a strong background in obstetrics and pediatrics is what initially attracted me to Milwaukee. My husband is going into Anesthesiology, and he will be at the Medical College of Wisconsin. We both feel pretty lucky we were not only able to end up in the same place, but also at very good programs! Milwaukee is new to us, but we love the idea of living near the water, cheering on the Brewer's, and checking out some of Milwaukee's breweries. We are coming from Colorado, and are not sure what we'll do with all the snow and lack of mountains, but I can guarantee my cross-country skis will get a lot of use. I'm excited to begin a new adventure in Wisconsin!

I choose Family Medicine because for me it was the perfect combination of clinic medicine and public health. I like focusing on prevention and chronic disease management while being a part of solutions to address the root cause of health disparities. I specifically chose Aurora St. Luke's because of their patient population: a large underserved community, a large Spanish speaking community and the opportunity to work with the uninsured. I also picked Aurora St. Luke's because I felt like their curriculum produced well rounded doctors including their focus on integrative medicine, community health, and leadership development. After residency I hope to continue working with urban underserved populations and likely at a Federally Qualified Health Center. A fun fact about me is that I really like to sail and I am hoping to go sailing on Lake Michigan this summer.

I chose Family Medicine because I was fortunate enough to have wonderful mentors who allowed me to see the enormous professional flexibility and deeply gratifying work that comes with this specialty. I am looking forward to the variety of experiences that I will get at Aurora. I feel that the program is a wonderful blend of a rigorous medical education and a family-friendly vibe. I am part Incan Indian and cannot wait until my 2 children are older so I can take them to visit the land of their ancestors. My future plans include a satisfying practice with the time to volunteer in various community organizations.

  • Hometown: Akron, Ohio
  • Earlham College, BA in biology
  • Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine

I chose to pursue osteopathic medicine because I have an interest and a belief in the inherent health of the body, which is one of the principle tenants of this philosophy of medicine. I chose to pursue a career in Family Medicine because I see the opportunity to closely encourage this health with a wide variety of patients, and because I see myself with the most opportunity to utilize all of the medicine I have enjoyed learning. I chose Aurora St Luke's Family Medicine because I see this program as best suited to meet me in all of these interests and goals. There is a strong team approach to patient care, and an emphasis in hospital and women's health that excites me. I intend to integrate osteopathic manipulation into my practice and am looking forward to working in the dually accredited environment of this program. I also am excited about the opportunities to learn about other integrative medicine through Aurora St Luke's.

I chose Family Medicine because I love the opportunity to take care of patients of all ages and I really enjoy the large variety of medical issues a family physician encounters. I also really like continuity of care. I chose Aurora and Milwaukee during my 4th year medical school rotations I did one of my electives with the Aurora Family Medicine Residency Program.  After that month I knew that this program would be a good fit. The faculty, staff and fellow residents were all very helpful and friendly. Also, having grown up in Milwaukee, I have very strong ties to the community. I love classical music and have played the viola since kindergarten. I also love outdoor activities like kayaking and fishing. I really like full spectrum Family Medicine but also have interest in women's health and adolescent medicine, which I plan to incorporate into my practice.

I chose Family Medicine because it provided a great opportunity for me to pursue all of my interests. I’m primarily interested in outpatient medicine, but also have interest in emergency medicine and urgent care. Family Medicine training allows me to pursue all of these, but also provides excellent in-patient training and OB.  Family Medicine also allows for the greatest opportunity to change the lives of patients and families.  Families are the basic building block of society. By treating families you not only make individual patients better, but are helping treat society as a whole.  I chose Aurora and Milwaukee above others for 2 reasons besides feeling comfortable on interview day and with the residents: integrative medicine and a strong DO/OMT background. I thought that this program would train me in these interest areas better than others as there is a strong commitment to both in the residency. The program takes multiple DOs each year and has a connection with Des Moines University to provide continued OMT training and techniques. Furthermore, I felt like the program provides exceptional training in both inpatient medicine and OB training.  The program is not unopposed, but I believe that makes for a better education as we are able to learn alongside experts in their field. I’m not from Milwaukee but I visited many times during undergrad, primarily to Summerfest. Through visiting, I learned that Milwaukee has many unique things to offer.  The city is large enough to provide almost anything you could desire, but small enough to commute, even during rush hour.  The city has a fun atmosphere especially in the summer with music and cultural festivals. People in Milwaukee are genuine and more relaxed than people in other large cities.  I have 2 primary interests outside of medicine: college/fantasy football and technology/video games.  I’m very interested in the newest tech hardware and pledge no allegiance to Apple/Google or Microsoft. I’d also be interested in holding a discussion on college football in the post BCS era or discussing your fantasy match up of the week. My career plans are undefined at this moment.  I have interests in urgent care and rural emergency medicine, but also have interest in sports medicine and OMT. As my training and interest evolve I could see myself pursuing a fellowship in sports medicine or neuromusculoskeletal medicine, or beginning to work and finally enter the "real world."

I chose Family Medicine because I value long-term patient relationships with people of varying ages. I am most interested in preventive outpatient medicine; hence Family Medicine was the best fit for me. I chose our program because of the diverse and dedicated faculty, the excellent rotations, and the friendly, supportive atmosphere created by staff, faculty, and co-residents alike. I was happy to come to Milwaukee because it has the cultural benefits of a large city without many of the big city hassles. Fun fact about me is that I was a massage therapist as well as a music booking agent before becoming a physician. My future career plans are evolving. My main goal is to be a thorough, compassionate, and effective outpatient primary care physician.

After working several years in the public health arena implementing refugee assistance programs in South Sudan, Kenya, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria, I returned to the US with an end goal of practicing medicine through a public health lens. I naturally gravitated towards Family Medicine as the best fit for my diverse interests in women's health and obstetrics, behavior change communication, mental health, and management of chronic disease. I find the breadth of knowledge fundamental to the practice of primary care both challenging and gratifying. The decision to relocate to Milwaukee and join the Aurora Family Medicine Residency Program is reaffirmed with each month - and rotation - that passes. The people, both residents and faculty, share a passionate and creative approach to addressing the complex health needs of our patient population. The city itself is a vibrant mix of the eclectic and cultural, and I have greatly enjoyed exploring the wide array of outdoor, athletic, culinary, and artistic opportunities that lie within our city limits. Whether my future clinic space lies in a dilapidated structure in the heart of downtown, a single story building amongst grain fields, or a mud and thatched roof tukul off the beaten path, my training with Aurora Family Medicine will have prepared me for whatever ailments walk through my doorway. Outside of medicine, my interests include running, camping, playing the ukulele, cooking, and spending quality snuggle time with our three cats and two dogs.

I choose Family Medicine because it allows me to approach the patient in a holistic manner. It better enables me to utilize the bio psychosocial approach to treat my patients which is more gratifying both to the patient and me as the physician. I chose this program and Milwaukee because when I interviewed here I fell in love with the people and instantly knew that I would receive a well-rounded education to practice full spectrum Family Medicine in the future.  I love to cook and I am fascinated with forensic science so that would have been my career path if Medicine was not my first love. I am intrigued with the diversity of Family Medicine but I enjoy women's health so my career goals include having a very successful practice which incorporates that aspect of medicine.

While obtaining my biology degree at Mt Mercy I knew I wanted to go into medicine, it was while in medical school I decided on Family Medicine.   With Family Medicine you can have your own family and take care of other’s families, several generations, which then become your extended family.  While interviewing at programs, I found that this program felt like it could be another family for me, one that would be very supportive through the tough residency years to come.  The only thing that could have made the move to this residency better is if I could have brought my horse along as well, trail riding is one of my favorite things to do for relaxation; luckily I have found other things I can enjoy while I’m here.   While I truly am glad I moved to Milwaukee, I do plan to go back to eastern Iowa to practice medicine in an outpatient setting, although a lot can happen in the next few years, so I guess we’ll have to just wait and see!

I chose Family Medicine due to my desire to practice rural medicine. Family Medicine allows me to care for people of all ages to best serve my community. I chose this program due to strong Midwest ties as well as the dedication and energy of the faculty and other residents here. I am probably most famous for my crocheting during lectures and meetings, a skill I picked up from my childhood family doctor. After residency, I plan to return to small town eastern Iowa to practice rural medicine near my family.

I chose Family Medicine because it provided me the opportunity to have long term continuity with patients so that I have a chance to develop a relationship with them and their families. I chose St. Luke's program for many reasons but mainly because of the incredible faculty. I knew that they would challenge me in a supportive environment and for me that was the most important part of residency. I absolutely love classic cars. My first car (which I got before I could even legally drive) was a 1966 Mustang that I adored. My dad also has a collection of muscle cars and occasionally decides to race the quarter mile with his Chevelle. There is nothing sweeter than the smelling of burning rubber and the roar of an oversized engine! I plan on moving out to the suburbs or a more rural area where I can focus on outpatient medicine or perhaps urgent care.

I chose Family Medicine because it understands that the health of our patients is dependent not just on the care we provide in clinic, but also the patient's community and environment. I chose Aurora because I worked with many of the teaching physicians and residents here while a medical student and really liked them. Fun fact: I'm a food nerd and was on the board of Slow Food Madison until starting residency. I also I plan to practice in Wisconsin after residency, and expect to teach medical students or residents as a part of my job.

Medicine, and more specifically being a family physician, allows me to make a meaningful impact in how my patients experience life and their surroundings - all in a way that has no geographic, economic or cultural limitations.  My decision to train at Aurora St. Luke's Family Medicine Residency was due to the program's dual accreditation and well-rounded Family Medicine training.  My post-graduate goals include working in a collaborative health center / medical practice that will allow my wife and I the flexibility to participate in medical missions in West Africa.  Outside of work and family time, I look forward to designing and building our future home.

  • University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

It is difficult to boil down the thought process about your career choice into a simple paragraph - I was drawn to Family Medicine for many reasons, some of which include:  the focus on a patient as a whole person in the context of their community; the challenge of working on complex social and medical problems, with consideration of how the social and medical issues influence each other; the continuity of primary care and the opportunity to get to know and care for an entire family unit; the ability engage with the community that surrounds and influences your patients and their health; prevention. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to closely work with our program during medical school as a part of UW's TRIUMPH program (Training in Urban Medicine and Public Health).  Through my time working with this program, I recognized a unique energy and dedication to community engagement, unwavering focus on quality patient care, and faculty and residents who genuinely enjoy working with each other and strive to create a consistently supportive environment.  Milwaukee also immediately won me over with its sense of community, beautiful parks, music and arts scene, and urban farming/gardening movements.  Need I say more?  I could go on....I spent formative time in college and between college and medical school living and working in rural Guatemala, working in a range of activities from interpreter for human rights accompaniment groups to a middle school teacher.  Another fun fact - I also am always looking for new artistic crafts, especially ones that might involve recycled materials, like magazines or phone books.   I would love to have a career that allows me to integrate my many interests:  community health in urban, underserved populations, adolescent populations, maternal-child health and OB, and maybe add in some teaching along the way.

The ability to provide comprehensive care and also build meaningful relationships with my patients is what attracted me to Family Medicine. I chose this program because of the great clinical experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings we are exposed to at Aurora; also, the wonderful support from both faculty members and residents.

I chose Family Medicine because, at some point during medical school, I realized that my idea of a doctor is someone who you come to when you're in need, regardless of the reason.  Family Medicine met that vision, and I feel happy to be able to learn about any part of the human being and have it be relevant to my job.  The program here in Milwaukee contained some of the most important things I wanted, being close but not too close to home and also having Integrative Medicine as a part of the curriculum.  This fits with my general vision of medicine, which is to empower patients to find lifestyle choices that lead to greater happiness and health.  I would like to pursue this vision in the future, in whatever way possible.  A fun fact about me is that I majored in Spanish and spent a year in Madrid, Spain.

I chose Family Medicine because I like taking care of patients of all ages, from the very young to the very old. I enjoy having the opportunity of developing lifelong relationships with my patients and supporting them through both good times and bad. I chose Aurora St. Luke's because I knew not only would I receive an excellent education here, but I was very impressed by the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. It also helps that my parents moved to the area while I was in medical school. It is very nice to have the support close by when stressful days come up. In my free time I enjoy crocheting, knitting, sculpting, or cooking. I enjoy making desserts or candy with my boyfriend and occasionally like to treat my coworkers to our creations. When I graduate I plan on going into a general outpatient practice, hopefully still within the Milwaukee area.

Family Medicine was right for me because I love the holistic perspective on health and individuals and the recognition that we all live in the context of our families and community around us.  Milwaukee grabbed my heart while I was a medical student rotating here.  After living in many larger cities prior to medical school, I am so impressed by the wonderful array of easy to access parks, biking, lake, food, and fun activities and festivals available in the city.  I also love the commitment here to continuously improving health in the city by medical and non-medical organizations alike.  Furthermore, as a medical student I had the opportunity to work with many of our faculty and loved the way they interacted with residents on a personal level and as mentors, avoiding hierarchical roles.   I was also drawn to our program by the commitment to community engagement outside of our clinics and our integrative medicine program.   Prior to medical school, I was a middle school English teacher and had a Fulbright Fellowship to Sweden in health policy.  When I finish residency I plan to maintain teaching, health policy, and community engagement as significant components of my practice in an academic setting.  Other fun fact: I am a member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society.

I decided on Family Medicine when I realized that I like the diversity and variety of the specialty. Aurora is a great program because there is amazing peer support and respect for Family Practice physicians.  Milwaukee was an ideal city for me because it offers a lot of the diversity of a big city without the traffic and stress.  In the future I hope to work in primarily an outpatient setting with the addition of practicing OB in a small town or suburb.  A fun fact about me is that my absolute favorite TV show of all time is Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I LOVE gummy bears!

I chose Family Medicine because I wanted to offer my patients comprehensive medical care. I enjoy taking care of all ages.

I also felt this program was very supportive of osteopathic medicine.  I have an amazing ability to get to a destination using memory and not a GPS with having only been there once before.
