MCW-Central Wisconsin Regional Campus

Philanthropic support is critical to our success. When powered by philanthropy, innovations like the regional campus bring excellence to medical education. Gifts to the regional campus are critical to:

  • Power innovation
  • Strengthen learning environment and technology
  • Recruit and train local faculty
  • Expand the horizons of local children and college students to consider science-related careers, including medicine

With successful achievement of this initiative, Wisconsin families will be the ultimate beneficiaries, when community-minded, locally training physicians are caring for patients - from healthy and safely delivered babies to senior citizens in need of compassionate geriatric care, as well as citizens and families seeking improved access to mental health care from compassionate psychiatrists.
