The Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry – Windsor Program
Launched in Fall 2008, the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry – Windsor Program is based on a distributed medical education model involving a partnership between the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario (UWO), the University of Windsor, and regional hospitals. This partnership builds on the Southwestern Ontario Medical Education Network (SWOMEN) which was initiated in 2002 to optimize medical education opportunities in the area and address the shortage of physicians across the region. All students will be fully registered at UWO and will receive UWO degrees. Twenty-four students are admitted to the Windsor Program annually.
