About Western Michigan University School of Medicine (WMed)
As one of the newer US medical schools, WMed is an exciting environment in which to pursue a postdoctoral experience. The medical school is a collaboration of Western Michigan University, which ranks among the 50 largest colleges and universities and among the top 100 national public doctoral universities in the US, with Kalamazoo's two teaching hospitals, Borgess Health and Bronson Healthcare. The medical school is a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation supported by private gifts, clinical revenues, research activities, tuition, and endowment income. WMed was granted preliminary accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education in 2012, and welcomed its inaugural class in August 2014. The 350,000 square foot educational building on the W.E. Upjohn M.D. Campus located in downtown Kalamazoo underwent a $68 million renovation and expansion project followed by an additional $10 million renovation that created space devoted exclusively to laboratory research. In 2016 the Innovation Center, a biotech incubator on the Parkview Campus, became part of the medical school. WMed is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) for continuing medical education.
