        After completing his BA at Youngstown State University in Ohio in 1954, Dr Hogan joined the Marquette University School of Medicine in Milwaukee (now the Medical College of Wisconsin) and graduated (MD) in 1958. He did his rotating internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the Milwaukee County General Hospital and joined the GI Fellowship program at the Marquette University School of Medicine (1962-1964) as one of the first fellows of the program. He was Chief of Gastroenterology at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Milwaukee (1964-1968) before returning to the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) in 1969. From 1990 to 1993, he was the Co-Chief of the MCW Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology with Dr Konrad Soergel and subsequently the Chief of the Division from 1993 to 1996. He is still an active full-time working member of the GI faculty at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
        Dr Walter Hogan has authored over 250 publications, 400 abstracts, and 33 book chapters. His pioneering work on sphincter of Oddi manometry led to the discovery of various types of sphincter of Oddi dysfunctions and to a landmark publication in the New England Journal of Medicine. He is on the editorial boards of several journals and is a much-sought-after faculty member at various national and international conferences. He is one of the few individuals who have been President of both the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA). He is the 2004 recipient of the AGA Janssen Award for Sustained Achievement in Digestive Sciences and is also the 1995 recipient of ASGE’s highest honor, the Rudolf V. Schindler Award.
