Why I chose MCW

Cliche though it may be, my interaction with the residents during my interview day was what ultimately sold me on the program. The collective personality of the group was resoundingly down-to-earth and good-humored; it was clear it would be an enjoyable place to spend five hard-working years.

What MCW has to offer to a Candidate

As an orthopaedic residency applicant, I was exposed to a number of excellent residency programs. For me, what separated MCW from the rest of the pack was its completeness. Residents receive strong, comprehensive training in all orthopaedic subspecialties without having to leave the great Milwaukee area. Graduated, prioritized surgical training produces technically sound and confident surgeons. Frequent substantial didactics are an additional highlight. Graduates universally feel well-prepared for general practice.

What I like about living in Milwaukee

Milwaukee has all the amenities of a metropolitan area (vibrant nightlife, restaurants and music scenes), while also providing access to phenomenal outdoor recreation with a half hour radius. There are excellent hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, skiing and camping opportunities, all of which I have taken advantage of as a resident. The Brew-City nickname is well-deserved, as in addition to the big names there are multiple world-class breweries in the area. Lastly, there is a sizeable population of Bears fans in Southern Wisconsin, so I have comrades with which to share the crushing pain of defeat.
