These hallmarks of Midwestern University are embodied in the compassionate, enthusiastic faculty members of every college and program. Their classroom interactions with you are their top priority, but they're also available nearly any time for questions, conversation, support, and active involvement in the life of the university.
In the classroom, you'll study under the direction of professionals in their fields who receive professional accolades for their teaching skills and support of their professions, as well as grant-supported funding for research or on-going study in specialty areas that include everything from infectious diseases, women's health, ADD, dangerous plants and venomous creatures in the desert, and diabetes to Continuous Chest Compression, the latest method for providing CPR.
Outside your classes, MWU faculty members are involved in service and community activities that range from judging the annual MWU-AZ Regional Brain Bee competition for high school students interested in scholarships to MWU, the St. Jude Chicago-to-Peoria Run, and Health Professions Career Day to the Downers Grove Campus' Mini Med School, the Glendale Health Career Institute, CCOM's Ward Perrin Clinical Refresher Course, the Medic 155 ambulance/EMT unit on the Glendale campus, the DOCARE Medical Mission Trip to Guatemala, and more.
When you study at Midwestern University, you benefit from exceptional scholars who are dedicated to educating and mentoring their future colleagues as they model excellent examples of the caring, collaborative, team-oriented, community-focused healthcare professional of the 21st century.
