New Fellow Friday: Welcome, Dr. Tyler Rosengren!

We are excited to welcome Dr. Tyler Rosengren as a new fellow in our Infectious Diseases program! Dr. Rosengren joins us following the completion of an internal medicine residency in Mason City, Iowa at MercyOne North Iowa. Read on to learn a little more about him.

Tell us about the position you are starting.

Here at UNMC, I am starting an Infectious Disease fellowship to continue following an interest I have had in microbes that I have had since early in my career.

Why did you choose to come to work at UNMC?

Growing up outside of Omaha, UNMC is where I have had a lot of my personal medical care in the past. As I progressed through my education, this hospital system became one that I looked at in a different light and wanted to become a part of. The added benefit of having family not far from the city is a bonus, but the UNMC Infectious Disease program itself is not only fantastic on its own, but it has some national recognition for things such as its antimicrobial stewardship guidelines and its role in the Ebola cases some years back.

What makes you excited about working in ID?

ID is an interesting field of medicine where not only are you treating the patient, but their disease process itself. There is another organism(s) that you are actually trying to treat that is causing all of the patient’s problems. This means that as new microbes and viruses are found, we have new organisms to treat. This, coupled with the difficulty in treating ever-evolving organisms, leads to a field that is constantly having to shift and adjust its thought process and standard of care. This constant evolution is what makes me interested in the field as a whole.

Tell us something about yourself that is unrelated to medicine

Outside of medicine, I have my wife and son whom I spend most of my time. We do have a pet rabbit as well. I have an odd conglomeration of hobbies from video games and reading fantasy stories to going on trips, trying new restaurants, and starting home projects. My attention span for any one project/hobby can be fairly limited by the amount of free time I have, so sometimes I end up bouncing between things not infrequently trying to do multiple things all at once.
