Dr. William “Billy” Michael has a medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago, IL and he completed residency at Puget Sound Family Medicine Residency program in Washington state, part of the University of Washington’s WAMI network. Prior to pursuing a career in medicine, Dr. Michael enlisted in the United States Marine Corps from 2001-2007 and this experience motivated him to pursue a navy commission through the Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP). After residency, Billy served as a US Navy physician practicing full scope family medicine at Naval Hospital Twentynine Palms, near Joshua Tree National Park. Upon the completion of his commitment to the US Navy, Billy and his family decided to move back to the Midwest and beautiful Madison, WI. Billy’s academic interests include, among others, mental health prescribing and treatment in primary care and exploring relationships between specialists and primary care physicians, especially in a rural practice setting. Outside of medicine, Billy enjoys playing sports (especially ice hockey), reading nonfiction and science fiction books, exploring national parks, playing board games and spending time with his family – spouse, Jessika, two daughters, Madeline and Josephine and son, Liam.
