Waukesha-based Kern Family Foundation has pledged $50 million to the Medical College of Wisconsin, in its second major philanthropic contribution to MCW in the past five years.

The gift builds upon $37.9 million give by the foundation to MCW in 2017 to establish the Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Institute for the Transformation of Medical Education, which is housed on MCW’s Wauwatosa campus and focuses on developing new methods for training medical students.

The new $50 million gift will advance the efforts of the institute as well as the Kern National Network for Caring and Character in Medicine, which launched alongside the institute in 2017 and now includes MCW and six other founding member schools.
