History of the Medical College of Wisconsin/Marquette Medical Alumni Association

  As noted in the history on the College, the old Wisconsin College of Physicians and Surgeons and the Milwaukee College of Medicine eventually became the Marquette University School of Medicine, which eventually became the Medical College of Wisconsin. While the names have changed, it is still the same school - the only private medical school in Wisconsin.

In 1925 the Marquette University Medical Alumni Association was incorporated and it came under the umbrella of the Marquette University General Alumni Association.

In 1967, when Marquette severed its ties with the medical school, the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association was faced with the decision of where the Association fit administratively. An independent Alumni Association was established to incorporate the graduates from the Wisconsin College of Physicians and Surgeons, the Marquette University School of Medicine, and the Medical College of Wisconsin.

The name "Marquette-Medical College of Wisconsin Alumni Association" was selected and in 1989 the name was changed to "Medical College of Wisconsin-Marquette Medical Alumni Association." On January 1, 1996, the Association changed to a non-dues-paying organization with the hopes that more alumni would feel a part of the organization and become more involved with the Association's programs and activities. Another important change came with the approval of revised bylaws on May 10, 1996. The revision welcomed all alumni as members of the Association. This includes those alumni who received their M.D., Ph.D., master's, Master of Public Health or did their residency training at the College or one of our affiliated hospitals. The Alumni Association is represented on the College's Board of Trustees and a variety of other committees, including the admissions committee.
