Officials say a $5.1 million gift to Albion College will help transform pre-medical education at the school. The school announced Monday that Lisa and James Wilson, who graduated from the college in the 1970s, are making the gift that will establish the Lisa and James Wilson Institute for Medicine at Albion College. The school says it's the largest gift by an individual or couple in the school's history.
The Institute for Medicine will help people rethink and advance undergraduate teaching and preparation. This fall, a group of faculty will review changes in medical school curricula, review studies of medical education and develop coursework. Plans call for the first courses from this effort to start next fall.
