The MCWfusion Difference

We understand that choosing a medical school is a critical life decision – it's about finding the place that fits your learning style, your lifestyle, and your career goals.

At MCW, from day one you’ll have easy access to your fellow students, nationally-recognized faculty, and the best medical education resources.

Our MCWfusion curriculum provides a phased approach for a comprehensive medical education, including doctoring threads paired with practice opportunities.

Phase 1 provides system-based foundational science training and immersive clinical experiences.

Phase 2 consists of core clinical experiences arranged in integrated blocks.

Phase 3 offers individualization, differentiation, and two acting internships.

Doctoring Threads are integrated throughout all phases: communication skills, health equity, critical thinking, patient care skills, health systems science, character and professional development, interprofessional education and practice.
