Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine (WMed), located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, is committed to a steadfast mission that each of our learners will become exceptional clinicians, leaders, educators, advocates, and researchers of tomorrow. WMed is among just a few institutions in the U.S. in the last several decades to be built from the ground up. It is a challenging opportunity, but we are expanding and flourishing by drawing from the strengths of our community and our extraordinary collaborators. It is through this community collaboration in medical education, patient care, research and service that WMed is becoming a leader among medical schools.
