Medical College of Wisconsin
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; to improve the health of the communities we serve.
Celebrating 120 Years: 1893-2013
In 2013, the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) marks the 120th anniversary of the institution’s founding. It is also the 100th anniversary of MCW’s long and formative years as the Marquette University School of Medicine.
MCW began as the Wisconsin College of Physicians and Surgeons, founded on May 20, 1893. On January 14, 1913, the Wisconsin College of Physicians and Surgeons and the Milwaukee Medical College merged to become the Marquette University School of Medicine.
In 1967, Marquette University, due to financial constraints, terminated its sponsorship of the medical school. Since then, the school has continued as a private, freestanding institution. The name was changed in 1970 to the Medical College of Wisconsin.
From these roots, MCW has grown into a nationally recognized education, research and clinical powerhouse. MCW has more than 15,000 living alumni.
Faculty / Staff
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) has more than 5,500 faculty and staff (approx. 5,050 full-time equivalents). Faculty: Approximately 1,600 full-time and part-time. Staff: Approximately 3,445 full-time / 230 part-time / 240 project and limited-term. More than 4,580 faculty and staff work on the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center campus and more than 930 work at 29 other health care facilities in eastern Wisconsin. More than 1,500 physicians from the community serve as volunteer faculty. MCW is the 9th largest private employer in the metro area.
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) offers the MD, PhD, MS, MPH and MA degrees. PhD degrees are awarded in basic and translational research; biochemistry; biophysics; biostatistics; cell biology, neurobiology and anatomy; microbiology, immunology and molecular genetics; pharmacology and toxicology; physiology; public and community health; and functional imaging (joint PhD program with Marquette University).
Master’s degrees are offered in: bioethics (MA), clinical and translational science (MS), and public health (MPH). Joint degree programs are offered in: bioinformatics (MS) and healthcare technologies management (MS) with Marquette University, and medical informatics (MS) with the Milwaukee School of Engineering. A dual degree program with Mount Mary College offers the MPH degree. In addition, Graduate Certificate programs are offered in Clinical Bioethics, Public Health and Research Ethics.
Residency training is offered in 83 specialties and subspecialties accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
In 2007, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC) granted reaccreditation to MCW for the longest term possible (10 years). The HLC is the accrediting body for all institutions of higher education in MCW’s geographic region. (HLC - www.ncahlc.org)
In 2011, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) awarded full, eight-year accreditation to MCW, the maximum period of accreditation. The LCME is the accrediting body of all U.S. medical schools.
Education and Training
There are more than 1,260 students enrolled in degree-granting educational programs at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). This includes 810 medical students, and more than 450 graduate students.
In addition, MCW faculty supervise approximately 650 physicians in residency training and 250 physicians in fellowship training through the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals. Approximately 200 scientists are engaged in postdoctoral research fellowship training through the Office of Postdoctoral Education.
MCW works with national and international medical specialty societies and community hospitals to accredit approximately 200 continuing medical education activities annually for physicians and other health professionals.
Community Medical Education Program
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) is developing a community medical education program to meet Wisconsin’s critical need for more physicians in the coming decades. Wisconsin faces a significant shortage of physicians, primarily in primary care in rural and urban underserved areas, according to extensive studies by the Wisconsin Hospital Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges and the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health.
MCW’s first two community medical education campuses will be based in the Green Bay and Central Wisconsin regions. The program will feature an immersive education model, in which medical students receive their medical education and training in these Wisconsin communities, with the goal of students remaining in the communities to practice as physicians. The immersive model is a strong predictor of success in retaining physicians, according to data that show that 70% of students who complete both medical school and residency training in Wisconsin stay here to practice.
The development phase of the program is underway with initial funding from the Research and Education Program of MCW’s Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin endowment. The goal is to admit the first group of up to 15 medical students at each campus as early as July 2015.
Collaboration is a centerpiece of the community medical education program, as MCW is engaging physician practices, county medical societies, academic and health system leaders, local government, and business and civic leaders in the Green Bay and Central Wisconsin regions to assist in planning the program. Collaboration is cost-effective, as start-up expenses are greatly reduced by sharing existing facilities and resources of the regional partners in lieu of new construction.
MCW’s community medical education program partners in Green Bay and Central Wisconsin include:
Green Bay Region
Aurora BayCare Medical Center
Hospital Sisters Health System Eastern Wisconsin Division
Northeast Wisconsin Technical College
St. Norbert College
University of Wisconsin – Green Bay
