Marquette, Wisconsin Medical College form joint program

Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin are forming a joint program for biomedical engineering.

School officials say the program will combine Marquette's strengths in research and engineering with the Medical College's strengths in research and clinical programs.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the program could give Marquette engineering students more access to doctors and scientists at the Medical College, as well as give researchers from both schools better access to grants.

Each school has committed adding five new faculty members to the discipline. The department will be overseen by both schools and will offer graduate and undergraduate degrees.

Medical College president and chief executive officer John Raymond Sr. says the Medical College will still continue to work with the Milwaukee School of Engineering and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
