Elyse Hanly, MD, PhD

I was born in New York City and grew up mostly in Massachusetts, although some of my early childhood was spent in Wisconsin. I went to undergrad at Wash U in St. Louis and played on the women’s soccer team. After that I went to New York Medical College and lived in the Big Apple for two years. I chose Iowa for residency because of the amazing people, excellent training, and love of the Midwest.  In my free time I enjoy team sports, fishing, mountain biking, anything outdoors, and hanging out with family and friends.
