Western Michigan University is a public university in Kalamazoo. The university conducts research in the health sciences, and two teaching hospitals in the city already train residents on clinical rotations. So, in 2010, WMU began the process for accreditation of a new medical school.
This week, WMU announced an anonymous donation of $100 million to launch the new school. Like the source of the gift, WMU’s medical school will be privately funded. The school now has a dean and several committees dedicated to having classrooms ready to welcome students in two or three years.
