SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Dear future and prospective Badgers, It is a source of great sorrow to the UW community that Dr. Paul Bertics passed away yesterday, and our thoughts during this holiday season are with his family and his many friends. While most of you whom had the great fortune to interact with Dr. Bertics did so in his capacity as chairman of the medical school admissions committee, he will be remembered as a great teacher, mentor, scientist, and above all, a wonderful person. One of Dr. Bertics' passions was to be involved in admissions in an effort to maintain the future of UW as one of the greatest medical schools in the country. He was very excited about the incoming class of 2016, and I am sure Dr. Hansen and the other faculty and student members of the admissions committee are focused on maintaining his legacy in the selection of yet another amazing class!
