Dear Prospective Student,

On behalf of the Office of Student Inclusion and Academic Enrichment, it is my privilege to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in the Medical College of Wisconsin. We understand that selecting the right medical school can be a very daunting task. We hope that your time spent on our website will aid you in your fact-finding mission.

As the Associate Dean of Student Affairs/Diversity, I am passionate about education and my work allows me the opportunity to couple that passion with my personal conviction of supporting those students who are underrepresented in medicine with the opportunity to realize their dreams as a physician. MCW provides a supportive environment in which students are mentored and challenged during their pursuit of their medicine degree. Our office is here to help ensure your successful growth and development.

Our ultimate goal is to educate and train the next generation of diverse physicians and equip you with the cultural competence necessary to serve a multicultural society.

I invite you to discover more about our campus and consider applying. Should you have any questions, please send your inquiries to: studentdiversity@mcw.edu.

Sincerely,

Dawn Bragg, PhD
Associate Dean of Office of Student Inclusion and Academic Enrichment
Measurement and Evaluation
Professor of Pediatrics-Medical Education

Vision Statement:

To provide the support and enrichment for every student to become competent physicians delivering culturally compassionate and competent patient-centered care.

Mission Statement:

The Office of Student Inclusion and Academic Enrichment is committed to supporting diversity of all types in medical education as well as recruiting and supporting students and residents who are Under-Represented in Medicine (URM).

Students who demonstrate experiences in one or more of the following categories will be deemed to contribute to the diversity of MCW student body:

  • Growing up in poverty or in a disadvantaged socioeconomic status
  • Being the first person from one's family to attend college or graduate school
  • Overcoming educational disadvantage (graduating from a high school with little resources or with a high dropout rate)
  • Having a primary language other than English
  • Living in a rural area
  • Overcoming a significant handicap

  Financial Assistance

Several major competitive scholarships are available to students who contribute to the diversity of the student body and have outstanding academic credentials. For Wisconsin residents, the Dean's Scholarship reflects the College's commitment to ensure that students from diverse backgrounds have an opportunity to pursue their career goals in medicine. Other scholarships available and open to both Wisconsin and out-of-state residents include the Presidential Scholarship and the Advanced Medical Opportunity Scholarship. In addition to these, the Wisconsin Energy Corporation Foundation Endowment and the Hearst Foundation Endowment were recently established to provide financial support to deserving students.

 

Scholarships are also funded through several clinical departments for students from diverse backgrounds who possess outstanding academic credentials. Students who would like to be considered for any of these scholarships should contact the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs/Diversity. Institutional financial assistance is comprised of need-based scholarships, interest-deferred loans and federal loans (i.e. Stafford loan program). The Office of Student Financial Services provides assistance to students completing their financial aid application. Application fee waivers for financially disadvantaged applicants are available for those who have received an AMCAS fee waiver. Students are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions as questions or concerns arise. In addition, students do not have to be accepted to begin the financial aid process; however, a clean credit report is required of all students prior to matriculation.
