 Pediatrics Resident Life

Three residents
​​​​​​​​​​​​“My favorite thing about the program is the people. Since day one, everyone has been so welcoming and everyone is so invested in resident’s learning.”
-Dusan Markovic, M.D. (PGY3) ​

Our residency program supports its residents and helps them achieve their full potential, in an environment that values their diversity and celebrates individuality. 

Residents walking through our doors participate in a well-rounded, humanistic training experience in a large tertiary care center with all the benefits of living in a community setting.


​Our residents and graduates consider their training to encompass "the best of both worlds."​ Marshfield is affectionately dubbed "The City in the Center" of Wisconsin, residents are able to enjoy:

  • Short commute, most residents living within 5-10 minutes of the hospital campus.
  • Small town with access to all the necessary amenities and facilities, supporting a good work/life balance.
  • Great place to raise a family, with nearby school and daycare options. Many residents also have children.
  • Low cost of living, and reasonably priced housing from apartments to houses (average rentals from $625-$900/month).
  • Numerous season specific outdoor activities, #lakelife!
  • Nearby big cities, enabling travel and weekend escapes!
  • Child care at the nearby hospital-sponsored center give you the option of visiting your child periodically. Early morning and late evening hours are available.
