We are a distinguished leader and innovator in the education and development of the next generation of physicians, scientists, pharmacists and health professionals; we discover and translate new knowledge in the biomedical and health sciences; we provide cutting-edge, collaborative patient care of the highest quality; and we improve the health of the communities we serve.
The Medical College of Wisconsin defines diversity as a commitment to recognizing and appreciating the variety of individual differences in an environment that promotes and celebrates individual and collective achievement. The diversity of MCW continues to be an important source of innovative ideas and creative accomplishments.
MCW prides itself on being an inclusive community where all individuals are valued and respected. Inclusion is about embracing, respecting, honoring, recognizing and ultimately leveraging the differences we innately possess to build a better community. An inclusive community is essential to our mission to be a national leader in the education and development of the next generation of physicians and scientists; to discover and translate new knowledge in the biomedical sciences; to provide cutting-edge, interdisciplinary and compassionate clinical care of the highest quality and to improve the health of the communities we serve.
To create a more vibrant and equitable community, MCW endeavors to achieve inclusiveness through the composition and actions of our board of trustees, leadership, faculty, staff, residents and student body. MCW's commitment to understanding differences and fostering respect and inclusiveness affects all aspects of the college, including what and how we teach and learn, and how we behave.
Institutions of higher education in the United States seek accreditation through two broad types of accreditation agencies, Federal Regional Accrediting Bodies that accredit institutions, and specialized bodies that accredit specific programs.
The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States. The HLC accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region of the U.S. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. MCW's Medical School, Graduate School and any future degree-granting schools are encompassed institutionally under HLC accreditation.
The Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME) is the accrediting body for all U.S. allopathic (MD-granting) medical schools. The LCME awarded full, eight-year accreditation to MCW in 2011, the maximum period of accreditation. LCME accreditation recognizes that MCW provides a medical education program consistent with the high standards of other U.S. allopathic medical schools, while HLC accreditation is also necessary to demonstrate that MCW functions in accordance with all Department of Education requirements.
