School of Medicine Discovery Curriculum

It’s a lifelong journey of learning and DISCOVERY.


MCW’s Discovery curriculum is a dynamic model that features multifaceted learning modalities – including classroom experiences led by nationally-recognized faculty, clinical experiences guided by expert mentors, peer-based small group interactions and opportunities for individualized career pursuits.

Our Discovery curriculum provides students with the drive, methods, collaborative spirit and long-term commitment needed for future success as physicians. Additionally, the curriculum propels students towards clinical excellence in the short term and engenders lifelong learning. The course of study reflects the collaborative and enthusiastic development effort of basic scientists, clinicians, students and staff members to create an innovative curriculum that is geared toward producing exceptional and compassionate physicians prepared to practice medicine in the 21st century. Truly, the Discovery curriculum encourages students to think and act like physicians from “day one.”
