Medical College of Wisconsin Medical School Medical School

MCW-Central Wisconsin

We are a regional campus that develops community-focused physicians who will meet the healthcare needs of Central Wisconsin and surrounding regions.


In July 2016, MCW-Central Wisconsin matriculated its first class of medical students at our newest campus in beautiful Central Wisconsin, working in partnership with the best academic and medical facilities in the region. If you love the quality of life that comes with year-round outdoor sports and entertainment, balanced with great schools and quality family life in a mid-size city with top amenities, this campus may be for you.

MCW-Central Wisconsin provides an innovative and focused 3-year curriculum to train primary care physicians (family medicine, pediatrics and internal medicine), and psychiatrists who want to live and work in the region when they complete their medical education. The program is community-focused, involving many community providers and organizations in the outstanding curricular activities for our learners. We do not have research labs and aren’t suited to training students for complex specialties, but we offer small class sizes and the chance to get to know your faculty in the classroom and in the clinical setting. Students work side-by-side with community physicians while on clerkship rotations. By choosing MCW-Central Wisconsin, you can help ensure the sustainability of the healthcare system in our region, eventually taking the place of a retiring physician.

Our program offers contemporary learning technology, state-of-the art classrooms and labs, and the ability to get plenty of one-on-one attention from some of the best physicians in the region to help you learn how to become a world-class doctor and a leader in your community. If this sounds like the place for you, learn more and join us at MCW-Central Wisconsin.
