Why I am teaching at MCW

To me, working and teaching at MCW allows me to work in a collaborative setting with like-minded people who share similar values and goals. I truly believe that people here have their “heart in the right place and value family, education, and treating others with kindness and compassion. They are good stewards of the responsibilities bestowed upon them as educators and physicians. I am fortunate to be surrounded by incredibly intelligent and innovative thinkers who allow me to continue to educate myself and optimize my ability to train and care for others. I am grateful for the unwavering support I have received from my chairman and partners who have also served as my mentors. I am thankful for my talented colleagues and my team who have committed themselves to creating an unparalleled musculoskeletal oncology program at MCW based on a foundation of exceptional patient care and patient outcomes. I look forward to a future of enhanced educational efforts for our trainees, improvements in the care of our patients through research and innovation, and lifelong learning opportunities.
