Year of Graduation: 2013
I grew up in the Milwaukee area and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry. While I was a student in Madison, I worked in a neuroscience lab and studied the mechanisms that regulate the growth of axons. I attended medical school at Saint Louis University from 2009-2013. In medical school I worked in a lab studying the pathogenesis of the mucopolysaccharidoses and enzyme replacement therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis type VII.
I am pleased to be back in the Milwaukee area to continue my medical education at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The pathology program here provides strong training in both anatomic and clinical pathology, with weekly unknown slide conferences and clinical pathology conferences. There are additional daily peer review sessions and didactic sessions, many of which are held at the 18-headed microscope during which pathology topics are covered in an organized way to provide exposure to a wide range of cases. The residents and faculty at MCW are friendly and faculty members are available spend time working one-on-one with residents.
