Dr. Holterman is one man who can stand up and claim he worked hard to be in the position that he is today. And looking at his resume, you will realize that it all backs everything he might say about himself. But still, instead of gloating, Dr. Holterman is still working hard to make sure that the world is filled with nothing but happy, playful children.


His journey towards being one of the very best pediatric surgeons in the world was a long, tedious one. He started by pursuing a Bachelor of Arts (BA), Biology General at Yale University between the years 1976 and 1980. He then proceeded to the University of Virginia where he took an MD – Ph.D. in Medicine and Immunology for another eight years (1980-1988), and that was when he began practicing.


And with the skills that Dr. Mark Holterman has, then coupling it with all of the experience he has garnered over the years, it just goes a long way to show how much his word should be taken with a pinch of salt.


And speaking of his experience, he started off as an attending pediatric surgeon at Rush University Medical Center for twelve good years (2000-2012) (HealthGrove). This was where he got most of his experience and got the opportunity to improve his skills to a level where only a handful of pediatric surgeons are.


After that, he did a little bit of lecturing in The University of Illinois College of Medicine-Peoria. It was here that he further improved his skills in his field through extensive medical research, surgical care of infants and children (http://markjholterman.strikingly.com/). The latter was carried out as Dr. Holterman was teaching medical students and surgical residents in the university.


He was also the CEO and founder of Mariam Global Health which he founded back in 2012. On top of that, he is also working as a pediatric surgeon at OSF Healthcare. The latter just goes a long way to show how much of a hardworking individual Dr. Holterman is and hence earning all of the respect he has today as a pediatric surgeon and as a man in general.
