Dr. Glenn Schwenk was born at Camp LeJeune, USMC, North Carolina. His undergraduate work was completed at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he graduated with distinction in 1975. From there, he went on to Indiana University School of Medicine, receiving his M.D. in 1980.
After completing an internship at Ball Memorial Hospital and his residency at Indiana University School of Medicine, he was honored to be given a fellowship at Indiana University Medical Center in 1984-1985. "I was the first fellow in Cytology at the Indiana University Medical Center. I worked with a team that developed many innovations in the collection and interpretation of diagnostic cytology samplings."
Dr. Schwenk has taught at the Indiana University School of Medicine since 1985—first as a Visiting Assistant Professor and currently as a Clinical Assistant Professor. Sharing his expertise is important to Dr. Schwenk. "Through the years, I have remained active in sharing my knowledge with medical students, residents and colleagues."
Dr. Schwenk finds the field of pathology particularly rewarding. His work, so critical to a correct diagnosis and treatment, is a vital part of CENTA. But, Dr. Schwenk doesn't just see the clinical side of pathology; he sees the human side as well. "I know that the results of a biopsy may change a patient's life. I work diligently to ensure that the biopsy is completed with as little pain as possible—to my patients and to their pocketbooks!"
Dr. Schwenk is married. He and his wife have three grown children. When not seeing patients or teaching, Dr. Schwenk can be found in his vegetable garden or raising money for voluntary organizations at local churches, parochial schools and the Indiana University School of Medicine.
