Mark Wick, MD, is a surgical pathologist with special interests in diseases of the skin, soft tissue and thorax. He rarely sees patients face-to-face, but is always happy to do so at their request, or that of their primary physicians. His long-term research interests have been in the protein chemistry and immunohistology of human neoplasms (abnormal growths of tissue, including tumors), and the application of evidence-based principles to medical practice.
Dr. Wick was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and completed his education there. He received a BS from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, in 1974, and an MD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1978. He then moved to Rochester, Minnesota, for a residency in pathology at the Mayo Clinic. Following his training, he held faculty positions in the medical schools of the University of Minnesota and Washington University in St. Louis, before coming to UVA in 1999.
Outside of work, Dr. Wick is a home-centered person. He is married with three children, ages 15 through 21. He enjoys reading nonfiction (mostly history) and listening to many genres of music.
