Year of Graduation:
In addition to treat patients one by one at the bedside, there is the possibility to cure patients on a scale of hundreds, perhaps thousands, if we could better understand the pathophysiology of disease processes and provide targeted treatment. I chose pathology because it serves as a bridge between biomedical science and clinical science and it becomes an even more exciting field with today’s rapid advances in molecular biology and modern technology
I am happy to come to MCW for my residency training. Here we have department leaders on AP and CP who truly care and support resident education; our daily schedule is well balanced which allow us to gain enough experience through working on cases and schedule reasonable time to sit down and study. Our daily peer review conference give us wonderful opportunity to see all interesting/challenging cases from daily practice in our department and also cases for consultation, from tumor club and tumor registry. Another thing I want to mention is that if you are the person like me, who have passion for biomedical research, our program is the right place that can support us to do as much as we can during residency. There is always supportive staff, generous funding and smart ideas waiting for you.
After hours, I enjoy my time with family and participate in some sports. Milwaukee is the city where I can enjoy my family time on weekend by driving within half an hour for wonderful Milwaukee county zoo, children’s museum, art museum and a lot more. If you have any questions regarding the education in our program and life in Milwaukee, do not hesitate to send me email.
