My name is Kevin Lodewyk. I was born and raised in Michigan where I completed my undergraduate schooling at Kalamazoo College and medical school at Wayne State in Detroit. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for two years and we are currently expecting our first baby! I chose Wake Forest Baptist Health (and would choose it again) based on the high clinical and surgical volumes, great balance of independence, and the personal resident-run comprehensive clinic. I knew I wanted to see my own patients rather than shadowing attendings for three years, which is a keystone of the Wake Forest Baptist training. I'm now in my last year and have applied for a Glaucoma fellowship. Wake Forest Baptist has afforded me awesome friendships, talented mentors, and most importantly an incredible comprehensive foundation which will serve me greatly as I continue my training and start my career.
