GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Medical College of Wisconsin can begin recruiting medical students in the next month for its Green Bay area campus.
The Medical College has received approval from two key accrediting bodies and expects to welcome its inaugural class in July 2015.
The Higher Learning Commission expanded its current accreditation of the college's main campus in Milwaukee to include MCW-Green Bay. Also, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education determined the school to have the resources necessary to open its doors to students next year.
Classroom and administrative space is being built in the new science building at St. Norbert College in De Pere. Students will also complete coursework at Bellin College of Nursing and Radiologic Sciences, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
