Dr. Pam Galloway (born September 11, 1955) is an American physician and surgeon and a former Republican member of the Wisconsin Senate, representing the 29th District since 2011. On March 16, 2012, she retired from this office.

Galloway graduated with a BA from the University of Chicago in 1976, and earned her MD from the University of Virginia in 1980. Galloway is a member of a number of medical committees, and was the past Chairperson of the Marathon Republican Party. She was elected to the Wisconsin Senate in 2010.[1][2][3] She had been facing an effort to recall her from office.[4] However, on March 16, 2012, Galloway announced her resignation from office due to health issues in her family,[5] leaving the Senate evenly split between Democrats and Republicans. Galloway's seat was filled in the recall election, which had already been scheduled.[6] She was succeeded by fellow Republican Jerry Petrowski. She has since relocated to Indiana.
