Dr. Mary Klink joined the Department of Medicine in 1998. She was promoted to clinical associate professor in 2010 in the Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care.
Dr. Klink received her medical degree in 1979 from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, where she also completed a categorical internship and internal medicine residency. She then completed her fellowship in 1986 at the University of Arizona, Tucson. Dr. Klink began her career as an assistant clinical professor of medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, Department of Medicine, section of Pulmonary Medicine.
Over the course of her career, although originally a pulmonary physician by training, Dr. Klink has developed a strong interest and expertise in sleep medicine. She has extensive experience in treating a wide array of sleep disorders but has particular expertise in the management of complex sleep-disordered breathing. She served as the medical director of the Meriter sleep laboratory from its inception in 1993 and was an integral part in its merger with the University of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Sleep Clinic in 2006. The Wisconsin Sleep Clinic became operational in late 2007, with Dr. Klink serving as clinic director. Dr. Klink has been a dedicated educator and is heavily involved in teaching residents, sleep fellows and nurse practitioners in the area of sleep medicine.

Maureen is an expert clinician, educator, role model and teammate in Nephrology. She has taught NPs, PAs, residents, fellows, medical students and has published research and presented nationally. I have the highest regard in her skills and would not hesitate to recommend her as a provider for my own family."
