Midwestern University, also referred to as the MWU, was established in 1900 as a private, graduate college of medicine. It has two campuses - the one in Downers Grove, Illinois, is known as the Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine (MWU/CCOM) and the other, the Midwestern University Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine (MWU/AzCOM) is located in Glendale, Arizona. The Glendale campus is the larger of the two, covering 140 acres. This medical school has more than 1400 students.
The University offers a number of programs of study in medicine. Some of the degrees awarded include, Physician's Assistance (P.A.) Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine (D.P.M.), Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) and others. The P.A. program and the Doctor of Pharmacy program are 2-year programs available at Glendale.
