Schools and Programs

School of Medicine

The MCW School of Medicine in Milwaukee and campuses in Green Bay and Central Wisconsin provide an innovative, rigorous and immersive curriculum that prepares our graduates with a deep understanding of the healthcare needs in their communities.

  • The Milwaukee campus offers a four-year curriculum with opportunities to explore a wide variety of Scholarly Pathways that allow students to individualize their medical training while considering career paths of interest.
  • The Green Bay and Central Wisconsin campuses provide a calendar-efficient, three-year curriculum, ideally suited for students seeking a career with a primary care emphasis. Students live and learn immersed in the communities where they are likely to practice. MCW-Green Bay opened in July 2015 and its first class graduated in 2018. MCW-Central Wisconsin opened in July 2016.
  • The Anesthesiologist Assistant program (MSA) provides high quality education through challenging curriculum and comprehensive clinical teaching, preparing safe and competent providers for the surgical patient. Located at the Milwaukee campus, the MSA program matriculated its inaugural class in August 2016.

MCW is working to ensure that a larger proportion of our graduates stay in Wisconsin to practice after graduation. Our School of Medicine will help provide future physicians in communities across the state, particularly in areas where doctors are needed the most.
