Medical College selects Green Bay, Central Wisconsin campuses

The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Board of Trustees has authorized MCW’s leadership to enter into the development phase of establishing two community-based medical education campuses in Wisconsin. Sites selected for development are Green Bay and a yet-to-be determined Central Wisconsin with a goal of admitting the first group of medical students to the new campuses as early as the summer of 2015.

Milestones to be achieved are relevant to accreditation, funding, faculty recruitment and development, formalized agreements with local health care systems and academic institutions, MCW faculty approvals, and the creation of local residency programs.
