Ryan Berns, MD, MPH

Medical School: Medical College of Wisconsin

Hi everyone! I grew up in Oak Creek, Wisconsin (near Milwaukee), and then I studied at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I completed my undergraduate Biology and Master of Public Health degrees. After completing my MPH, I was drawn to the Medical College of Wisconsin-Green Bay for medical school because of their “Physician in the Community Pathway” that allowed me to link my medical education to many health promotion efforts in the community. Throughout medical school the family medicine preceptors that I worked with impressed me with the breadth and depth of their knowledge, and I quickly learned that I liked the variety of patients and problems that you encounter in family medicine.
I am passionate about sports medicine, public health, preventive/lifestyle medicine, procedures and point-of-care ultrasound. I was interested in Memorial because I knew I would get great experiences in these areas, while also surrounding myself with compassionate and competent residents and faculty to learn from. I ultimately chose Memorial for residency training because I am confident they will prepare me to be the kind of physician that I aspire to be.

On a more personal note, I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, weightlifting, distance running, yoga, hiking, biking, kayaking, camping (really anything outdoors), and following my beloved Wisconsin sports teams. My wife and I are looking forward to being in Indiana for the next three years. After the interview day and second look weekend we both knew that South Bend would be the perfect place for our family.
