The History of MCW

A passion for new knowledge and a dedication to a healthier world inspired the founding of the Medical College of Wisconsin 125 years ago. Through research, discoveries, and treatments, countless lives across Wisconsin and around the world are being changed for the better every day.

That's why for our 125th anniversary, we are celebrating the anniversaries that truly matter – the birthdays, wedding anniversaries, graduations, and everyday milestones – that we've helped make possible over the last 125 years.
