Medical School: Universidad Catolica de Santa Maria, Arequipa – Peru
Year of Graduation:

My interest in pathology stems back to my medical school in Peru. My medical thesis further encouraged my decision to pursue a career in pathology. Applying to a resident program sometimes can be difficult. I made the best decision in applying to MCW, a program with an academic curriculum that ensures a well-rounded pathology training.

The physicians who work here always take time to ensure that I am getting the most out of each rotation. You can always walk up to their doors and they are willing to devote their full attention to you anytime. Having the opportunity to spend time with our chairman every day to learn from his experience, knowledge and skills is invaluable. We receive the perfect balance between AP and CP, which will assure an excellent preparation for the boards.

The best thing about Milwaukee is the people. Everyone I have met, at the hospital or outside is friendly. The city offers a multitude of activities and is a perfect place to live for single people or families.

I am convinced that this training program will provide me with the necessary tools to continue an academic career. The education here at MCW in a mentored and supportive environment will prepare me for succeeding in my goals as a pathologist. Please don’t hesitate to send me an email if you have any questions. I will be happy to answer.
