Current Fellows

Peter Hyson, MD

Peter grew up in nearby Lake Placid, NY and went to college at Middlebury. He had a wandering path to medicine through such pursuits as an MA in Russian literature in Wisconsin, a few seasons on a Maine lobster boat, and a winter as a liftie in Colorado. He ultimately went to med school at UVM and completed his medicine residency at University of Colorado. He could not be happier to be back in his home region and lives with his wife Kelley and his human and dog children Wes and Yarrow. When he's not taking consults he can be most readily found in the outdoors on a bike, skis, or jogging shoes.

Colin Tkatch, MD

Colin grew up in central PA and went to college at Penn State where he met his wife Catherine and developed his love of fly fishing. His training then took him to Philadelphia where he recently completed his medicine residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He and his family were drawn to greener pastures and mountain hikes, and are very excited to experience all that Vermont has to offer. Outside of the hospital you can find him enjoying a campfire, trucking his 18 month old up a peak, or exploring Vermont's trout streams.
