Andrew Wentland, MD, PhD is a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Radiology, Biomedical Engineering, and Medical Physics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health. He earned his bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Wisconsin, during which he began his research career working on accelerated MRI techniques. Following his undergraduate training, he stayed at the University of Wisconsin to pursue his MD/PhD in the Medical Scientist Training Program. In this training program, he continued his work on MRI research to earn his PhD in Medical Physics. Following his MD/PhD, he proceeded to Stanford for clinical training as a diagnostic radiologist. During his time at Stanford, he expanded his skillset by researching artificial intelligence applications to medical imaging. Following the completion of his training at Stanford, he returned to the University of Wisconsin for subspecialty fellowship training in Abdominal Imaging & Intervention. Dr. Wentland joined the faculty at the University of Wisconsin in 2021 following the completion of his clinical training.
Dr. Wentland's laboratory focuses on the development of artificial intelligence models to improve the diagnosis of renal pathology. Furthermore, he investigates the use of AI-based image reconstruction methods to improve MRI acquisitions.
