Meet Derek J. J. Schmidt, MD
When I started medical school, I didn't realize that Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery was a medical specialty! I feel quite fortunate to have discovered it during medical school, quickly realizing that the scope of practice of Otolaryngology fit my personality and interests well. I cherish every patient visit, and the scope of medical problems that I treat. Your visit will seem light and laid back, but please be assured that I am taking what you say quite seriously. While I enjoy treating all areas within our specialty, I particularly enjoy treating children, as well as salivary gland, thyroid, and parathyroid surgery.
As an Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Minnesota, I take a great amount of pride in teaching our medical students and residents into becoming the next generation of physicians. As Department Head for HealthPartners Medical Group, we have grown into a tremendous group that can treat most every aspect of our specialty. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two boys, being out on the lake, golfing, and food & wine pairing.
