Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 1983

Good academic preparation, but medical school was years ago, so don't have a current impression of the program at this time.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

My experience at graduate school was enriching. I have grown and developed myself as a scientist. The pros were accessibility to faculty members and a very collaborative and congenial atmosphere. However, there are a few issues that need to be addressed. The cons were low academic competitiveness as there was lack of drive to excel, quality of instruction and lack of funding. Lack of funding led to lack of choice in choosing labs or projects. Overall, it was a fine journey.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are that there is such a wide variety of students that attend this school because they are a private organization so people from all over the country can come here. Also I really like that it is close to all my family which is very important to me. We have outstanding faculty that are very brilliant and many have national recognition. The cons of the school is that the class size is very large so that we do not get very individualized teaching. I sometimes feel like a number more than anything else.

The strong points of MCW are its ability to provide students with extensive medical resources, helpful professors and healthcare staff, and technology that is relevant to doctor's in this constantly changing healthcare environment. Unfortunately, the school does not offer on-campus housing and harsh winter weather conditions may deter out-of-state students from confirming attendance.

Being at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Wauwatosa, WI is nice to be in a smaller city just outside of Milwaukee. Everything is close by without being smack dab in the middle of a big city, but you are close enough if you want to go. The diversity of our class is astounding, and the school strives to utilize student involvement and feedback in their curriculum design. Our use of technology, and the emphasis on innovation, keep the MD program at MCW improving each and every year.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: The faculty here are wonderful. They are really interested in you and your development as a scientist. Additionally, it is a very collaborative environment with very little competition between the graduate students. Cons: Classes are limited. Being as this is a small school, while you get a lot of individual attention, most classes are only offered every other year. Additionally the variety in courses offered is limited. However, the faculty really are interested in your development as a scientist and will personally fill in any gaps that seem to be lacking in your education. The only other con would be the social scene. It has definitely improved since I started here, however with most of the students from around here, they already have their base of friends and breaking in can be a bit daunting. Additionally, many of the students here are married.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Great program overall. Somehow admissions cultivates a very friendly and genuinely nice class every year (from among pre-meds no less -- let's be honest, pre-med kind of forces people to get uber competitive). Very strong on-campus student organizations and student assembly. Student voice is listened to. The only major down-side is that the website-based technologies are a little out-of-date. Good student access to electronic medical records during clinical years though.

The research here is very strong and professors are great. The career center does a good job of providing information and support regarding the various potential career paths for after graduation

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros include a great class who are not competitive with each other. Everyone tries to help the peers out by posting notes and study guides for everyone to use. The program also places its students into clinics early in their education, which is extremely beneficial. Some cons are high tuition costs, not well recognized as a medical institution, and too much small group work.
