The Medical College of Wisconsin
and Life in Milwaukee
The Medical College of Wisconsin, with an enrollment of approximately 800 medical students, is one of the largest private medical schools in the country. MCW is affiliated with eleven major hospitals and health care centers for its teaching, research, and clinical service activities. The Medical College has supported a large HIV prevention research program since 1990. That program became designated as CAIR, an NIMH-supported HIV prevention research center, in 1994. All MCW educational programs are fully accredited.
Milwaukee is a thriving, progressive city with a metropolitan population of 1.5 million persons. It is located on the shore of Lake Michigan about 90 miles north of Chicago. Milwaukee combines the charms and friendliness of a small Midwestern city with the advantages and attractions of a much larger city - including museums, major league sports, cultural events, ethnic diversity, and outdoor festivals nearly every summer weekend. Milwaukee is home to Summerfest, the world's largest outdoor music festival. The cost of living is low and quality of life is high. Milwaukee has a climate characterized by warm summers, cold winters, and temperate springs and falls. Affordable housing is available near CAIR's offices.
