Dr. Wieland had a diverse educational background before going to medical school in his home state of Illinois. He completed post-undergraduate language training at the University of Pennsylvania, then did graduate work in Classics at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. Following his time in the U.K., he returned to the United States to study at the Committee on International Relations at the University of Chicago, after which he went back overseas to live and work.
