Ryan Lau, MD


Waukesha, WI

Favorite things to do in the Denver area: RiNo breweries, City Park picnics, running the Cherry Creek Trail, picking a random hike on the AllTrails app.

Hobbies: Live music (indie folk, jazz), vinyl records, history and mystery podcasts, finding the best Trader Joe's wine.

Biggest strength of the program: Besides the wide subspecialty exposure and range of clinical training sites (university hospital, VA, children's hospital, inner city level 1 trauma center), my interview day at CU had me sold. The faculty and residents create an authentic, fun community that I wanted to be a part of!
