Lori Weber, MD - Program Director
Get to know Dr. Weber
Lori was born and raised in Wisconsin, receiving her medical degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine. After training in pediatrics at San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium-Wilford Hall Air Force Base, Lori fulfilled a Health Professions Scholarship Program commitment at Minot AFB, North Dakota. After completing this, she returned to Wisconsin to join Gundersen Health System in La Crosse in 2004.
After working at Gundersen for one year, Lori began her medical education career as director of the Third Year Medical Student Pediatric Clerkship. She initially thought that was all that she could contribute to medical education at Gundersen. Then, in 2014, Lori was offered an opportunity to become the program director of the Transitional Year Residency. She jumped at the chance to lead resident education and has never looked back. Lori truly enjoys her time at Gundersen, which is now divided between guiding residents, organizing medical students in Pediatrics and taking care of her pediatric patients.
Lori loves being active by maintaining her strength and health as she trains for triathlons and goes on walks with her family and their dog. She also enjoys traveling with her family on memorable trips to Europe, Alaska, Hawaii and Colorado.
