Why Choose MCW-Central Wisconsin

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 program to train primary care physicians, surgeons and psychiatrists who will live and work in the region when they complete their medical education. By choosing MCW-Central Wisconsin, you can help ensure the sustainability of the healthcare system in our region by working as a family doctor or in another specialty – and 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.
