Roy Long, PhD, and his wife grew up in a small town in Central Pennsylvania, and they like the feel of a small, tight-knit community. So when the opportunity arose for Dr. Long to serve as assistant dean of curriculum for MCW-Central Wisconsin, he jumped.
Dr. Long brings a wealth of experience to share with the medical students, the first cohort of which will start in summer 2016. He has been a member of the Microbiology and Immunology faculty at MCW-Milwaukee since 1998, and during that time, built a successful research lab, was promoted, and received leadership appointments in both the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Medical School. He also is a true believer in the MCW-Central Wisconsin curriculum design and was a member of the project team that helped establish the regional campuses.
“MCW-Central Wisconsin students really will appreciate the personalized education they get, and the fact they will get to know their fellow students pretty well,” Dr. Long said. “They also will have the latest and greatest technology available to them, and they will be immersed into clinical studies from day one. The way the clinical work is designed, it will allow students to follow a patient through time and develop a relationship with him or her.”
Hearing the pride in Dr. Long’s voice as he talks about the curriculum in MCW-Central Wisconsin, one senses there is more than just the small-town feel that brought him to that new locale.
