Medical College of Wisconsin gets $1 million grant


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Medical College of Wisconsin has received a $1 million grant to train physicians in geriatric care.

The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation awarded the grant, one of 10 awarded to medical schools nationwide.

In Milwaukee, the grant will be used to develop new approaches to residency training of non-primary care physicians.

In a news release, the foundation said it provides the grants to help improve the quality of health care for elderly people across America by preparing health care providers.

The grantees are required to match one dollar for every two dollars from the foundation.
