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 an academic career. 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. To house the medical school, the 350,000 square foot primary educational building on the W.E. Upjohn MD Campus located in downtown Kalamazoo underwent a $68 million renovation and expansion project. An additional $10 million renovation created space devoted to laboratory research. The medical school operates its own clinics, housed in a separate 60,000 square foot clinical building on the nearby Oakland Drive Campus. In 2016 the Innovation Center, a biotech incubator on the Parkview Campus, became part of the medical school. WMed is a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation supported by private gifts, clinical revenues, research activities, tuition, and endowment income.

The Kalamazoo Promise is a nationally renowned program in which graduates of Kalamazoo Public Schools receive free tuition to attend public and private colleges in Michigan. At the other end of the educational continuum, the Kalamazoo Ready 4s program ensures that every 4 year old in Kalamazoo County has the opportunity to attend a high-quality pre-kindergarten program, regardless of ability to pay. Kalamazoo and Michigan provide extensive entertainment and recreational activities, including opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, unique restaurants and shops, and a strong culture supporting the arts.
