View Some of Our Favorite Photos of 2013
The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is a dynamic, diverse institution, evidenced by our dedicated faculty, staff and students who are shaping the future of healthcare.
While it's impossible to easily summarize all of the elements that make our school great, what follows are 15 of our favorite photos from 2013 that exemplify our missions of education, patient care, research and community service. The images were shot by John Maniaci of UW Health marketing and public affairs, Todd Brown and John Wingren of Media Solutions, and medical student Matthew Kutz.
We hope you enjoy these photos, and we hope you're looking forward to 2014. On Wisconsin!
The School of Medicine and Public Health and UW Hospital and Clinics participated in the annual UW-Madison Science Expeditions, which included a hands-on tour of the clinical simulation facility.

The Art of Science
This colorful image from the lab of Su-Chun Zhang shows neurons (red) and glial cells (green, supporting cells in the brain) from human embryonic stem cells.
A Perfect Match
Match Day could not have gone any better for Natalie Weisensel. Not only did she learn her residency location, she got a marriage proposal from (then boyfriend) Brandon O'Neill (now fiance).

One Last Photo with Bucky
New doctors pose with Bucky Badger after graduation. Their careers may take them far from Madison, but they'll always be Badgers.
Learning About Mindfulness
Even in the hectic life of a medical student, it's important to slow down once in a while. About 20 students learned about the fundamentals of mindfulness, which has benefits including clarity of mind, better listening skills, greater empathy and an increased sense of connectedness.
Great Cast of Characters

Our Proud Campus
From the rooftop of Rennebohm Hall, one has a perfect view of the Health Sciences Learning Center, Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research and UW Hospital and Clinics.
The Wisconsin Idea in Action

Slowing Down? Not This Guy
Don Schalch, professor emertius, is a longtime mentor to our students. Though he retired in 1999, he volunteers as the medical director and regular attending physician for MEDiC, our network of student-run free clinics. Now in his 80s, he still regularly rides his bike.
Leading by Example
Patrick Brown, a student in our MD/PhD program, is well on his way to a career as an outstanding physician/scientist. But he also wants to have a positive impact on others. “What I care about is the generation behind me and whether they can succeed. As I succeed, I need to turn around and bring someone else with me," he says.
