Travis Wieland, MD, MA, MSc
Chief Resident, UNC Department of Emergency Medicine
OGHE Global Health Scholar
Dr. Wieland had a diverse educational background before going to medical school in his home state of Illinois. He completed post-undergraduate language training at the University of Pennsylvania, then did graduate work in Classics at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. Following this, he returned to the United States to study at the Committee on International Relations at the University of Chicago, after which he went back overseas to live and work. While abroad, he decided to pursue medicine with the end of combining his interest in global affairs with his desire to have a career that focused on helping others. He is now in his final year of emergency medicine residency at the University of North Carolina, and will be pursuing fellowship training in global health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison after graduation.
