Why I chose MCW

MCW is a unique program which offers their residents an excellent combination of operative experience and an academic atmosphere. The program provides the tools to become an exceptional general orthopaedist, while providing the opportunity to obtain excellent fellowships. I was drawn to the program’s warm and open attitude, with incredibly approachable attendings and a group of residents who enjoy the company of one another, not only in the hospital, but outside as well. In addition, I could not be happier living in Milwaukee.

What I like about living in Milwaukee

It offers the feel of a small town, with most of the perks of living in a majority city. Summer is certainly the most enjoyable time in the city, between Brewers games, the multitude of festivals (most importantly Summerfest), along with a beautiful lakefront beach, few places compare to this city during the summer.
