MILWAUKEE — The Medical
College of Wisconsin said Wednesday it has received more than $5
million from the state Building Commission to develop two new
medical school campuses.
The funds, which were approved in the 2013 state budget, are now
being released to support the development of both campuses. This
allows MCW to formally begin utilizing the grant funding,
according to a statement.
“We are grateful for the support and partnership with the state
of Wisconsin, along with generous support from members of the
State Building Commission and the state legislature, who made
this possible,” said John R. Raymond, Sr., president and CEO of
MCW. “Developing two new medical school campuses in Green Bay
and in Central Wisconsin will allow us to train physicians in
the regions of our state that will most greatly benefit.”
MCW-Green Bay and MCW-Central Wisconsin will eventually graduate
an additional 50 physicians per year, or 25 additional students
per campus, according to the statement.
