Virtual Campus Visits
Due to the pandemic, we can’t host guest students who want to learn about MCW-CW at our campus location, so we will bring the campus to you! If you’re considering medical school and the MCW-Central Wisconsin campus specifically, please join us to learn about our campus mission, our courses and how to prepare for admission and student life at our regional medical school campus. We will even provide a virtual tour of our beautiful new facility in Wausau, WI!
To register and get the link to participate, please email Chris Knight, Student Services Program Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Programs at MCW-Central Wisconsin
Creating a Pathway for Rural and Hmong Students at MCW-Central Wisconsin
Through the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment (AHW), the Medical College of Wisconsin-Central Wisconsin will develop an Advocates in Medicine (AMP) pathway to facilitate easy entry of undergraduates from rural and Hmong backgrounds into the medical degree program in order to develop a future health care workforce that is poised to meet the diverse health care needs of Wisconsin communities.
The selected student will have opportunity to; complete their MCW-CW family medicine rotations at the Residency, participate on the Residency teaching service, be assigned a resident mentor, develop a pre-residency continuity relationship with future patients, and extend their MCW-CW community project into their residency program. The selected student does not have to participate in the NRMP Match program (however the student retains the right to drop out of the exception and go through the competitive multi-residency program interview process by participating in the NRMP residency match).
The application process begins in January and involves a formal interview with the Residency Program after submission of a personal statement and Dean’s letter.
The Aspirus Scholars Program provides scholarships to MCW-CW first or second-year medical students through a competitive application process. The program provides a combination of scholarship and loan forgiveness (in exchange for a service commitment and rewarding career with Aspirus).
The Aspirus Scholars program is designed to help alleviate some of the debt burden many of our medical providers are faced with today.
Wisconsin Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Scholars is a two-year program designed to enhance and broaden a student’s healthcare training. Each year as an AHEC Scholar, you’ll participate in a combination of didactic and community-based experiential training in a Wisconsin rural community and/or with undeserved populations.
Educational and training activities support the following six (6) Core Topics:
- Interprofessional Education
- Behavioral Health Integration
- Social Determinants of Health
- Cultural Competency
- Practice Transformation
- Current and Emerging Health Issue
Residency Match 2022
