When Someone Implies that I Might Have To "Tone Down the Weird" for My Interviews

Tomorrow evening kicks off the third UW MSTP
Interview Weekend of the season. We're looking 
forward to meeting 15 awesome people, and we 
hope they're all comfortable enough to be themselves 
during their visit. No worries if that means being 
a little weird or showing off some sweet style!

Attendings We've Accidentally Fallen In Love* With: Dr. Kemp

Who is he? 
One of the inpatient pediatricians at Gundersen Health System in Lacrosse.

Why did we fall in love with him? 
He lured us in with his friendly personality and wicked sense of humor and then kept us comung back with his complete and total honest recognition of the fact that not all medical students need to be pediatrics-destined in order to be worthwhile human beings. In our humble opinion, Dr. Kemp is far and away the best clinical teacher in Lacrosse. Seriously, someone give this man a teaching award.

Which hospital website gets credit for providing that sweet photo featured above? 
This one:

*Fallen in love in a strictly professional manner. Maybe we're star struck, maybe it's Stockholm Syndrome, maybe it's something else entirely. These are generally people who never once yelled at us. In any case, we greatly admire these men and women and wanted them to be happy for at least a brief period of time while they were in charge of us.

Scenes from MSTP Retreat 2017

You may remember seeing Erin T. and Brett M. in images from
MSTP retreats of years past (for example, remember when they
were serving together as our awesome social chairs?). Four years
later and these two are still all smiles.
