MADISON — After four years of medical school at the University of Wisconsin, 2015 Kaukauna High School graduate Kelly Kuehl was hoping to be matched with a residency program close to home.
Madison’s WMTV News was on hand Friday when Kuehl and her classmates learned where they were going.
Kuehl said that since age 10, her dream was to serve as a doctor in her home state.
“It just feels right to me. I spent all this time learning and growing and putting all this energy into my education, and I really would like to just give back to the community that raised me and be able to kind of spread that forward in the future and be a part of the community I grew up in,” she said.
Kuehl’s dream came true when she learned she’ll return to the UW for the Family Medicine Residency Program.
