Maggie Larson, DO grew up in rural MN and received her B.A. in Psychology at Carleton College in Northfield, MN, while studying abroad in Spanish language and completing her pre-medical requirements. She then lived in the greater Chicago area for a short time working as a live-in counselor for teenage girls and as a medical assistant in a pediatric medical clinic affiliated with the Chicago Children’s Hospital. After completing medical school at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine, she stayed in the Kansas City area at the Research Family Medicine Residency, completing her third year as chief resident. As part of a National Health Service Corps scholarship repayment program, Dr. Larson worked for 5 years in a rural health system in central Minnesota practicing full spectrum family medicine including ER, hospital and obstetrical patient care, periodically supervising visiting medical students, PA students and residents. She is excited to return back to academic medicine by joining the staff at UW-Madison. Outside of work, she keeps busy with her husband, Jay, and 3 boys Jack, Erick, Leif and dog Norm. They spend way too much playing soccer, doing mathematics, attempting random home projects and planning their next great road trip adventure.
