EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Five resident physicians have joined the Mayo Clinic Family Medicine Residency Program in Eau Claire. The physicians were selected out of 769 applicants from medical schools across the country.
This is the third class of Family Medicine residents in the program, which now has 15 residents — five per year over the three-year residency.
"These outstanding resident physicians will work alongside our faculty physicians to provide patient-centered care for people of all ages living in Northwest Wisconsin," says Terri Nordin, M.D., residency program director. "From pregnancy care through delivery, well-baby checkups and yearly physicals, to ear aches and injuries, these physicians will practice at the forefront of primary care and innovation while focusing on our main value: The needs of the patient come first."
The residents are:
- Bridget Glomski, M.D.
Dr. Glomski is from Cadott, Wisconsin. She completed medical school at University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. "I chose Mayo Clinic Family Medicine Residency in Eau Claire for several reasons," Dr. Glomski says. "A huge draw is that my family is nearby and my husband works just outside of Eau Claire. The main reason, though, is simply the people. From my first interaction with the faculty and residents in Eau Claire, I knew that this was a place where I could fit, and these were people I would enjoy working with."
- Mollie Meagher, D.O.
Dr. Meagher, of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, completed medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. "During my fourth year of medical school, I had the opportunity to spend a month in Eau Claire with the residency program. I loved everything about my experience," says Dr. Meagher. "Every resident, faculty and staff member made me feel a part of the team. I knew it would be the perfect place to train for a career in rural family medicine due to the smaller surrounding cities but would also offer training of a busy hospital and the resources of a world-class institution. Being able to come back home to the Chippewa Valley was the cherry on top."
- Karley Mecko, D.O.
Dr. Mecko is from Crystal Lake, Illinois. She completed medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. "I chose Mayo Clinic Health System because I believe it can offer me a personalized education experience," says Dr. Mecko. "I also appreciate how the faculty and residents seem like a tightly knit group. I chose Eau Claire because I did my undergraduate studies in Wisconsin and loved living here."
- Carly Rosenberg, M.D.
Dr. Rosenberg, a native of Montreal, completed medical school at Technion — Israel Institute of Technology. "Family Medicine allows you to really know and connect well with your patients," says Dr. Rosenberg. "I also really like the diversity it offers. Eau Claire seemed like a very warm and friendly environment. Everyone I met and spoke to was extremely kind. I am excited to be part of the world-renowned Mayo Clinic."
- Kelsey Western, M.D.
Dr. Western is from Faribault, Minnesota. She completed medical school at the University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth Campus. "I chose Mayo Clinic Health System because it was immediately clear to me that the faculty is passionate about creating an innovative program with both the patients and the residents in mind," says Dr. Western. "There is a strong emphasis on team-based, patient-centered care, as well as resident wellness. I am very excited to be a part of the vibrant Eau Claire community."
Funding for the program came in part from a $750,000 grant awarded in 2014 by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to help train new family medicine doctors, especially in rural areas.
The residents and faculty will see patients in Family Medicine at Mayo Clinic Health System, 1400 Bellinger St. To schedule an appointment, call 715-464-6300.
