Maura Brennan, MD

Assistant Education Director & Lecturer

Dr. Maura Brennan grew up as one of the middle children of 12 in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She received a BS in Physical Therapy from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 1984 and practiced physical therapy for three years. She then took organic chemistry and the MCAT and started medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, graduating in 1992. She completed her OB/GYN residency at Saint Joseph Hospital on Lakeshore Drive in Chicago in 1996.

Since that time, Dr. Brennan has always been a teaching attending at several hospitals on the north side of Chicago and in the northern suburbs. She has been in charge of the M3 and M4 students at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital for the past five years in OB/GYN.

Her physical therapy background has greatly assisted her teaching skills for patients as well as medical students and residents. She feels it is imperative for faculty - both academic and clinical - to continue to teach the art of medicine as well as the science of medicine.

In her free time, Dr. Brennan likes to spend time with her husband and four children, doing anything outside as often as possible.
