U.S. Sen. Gary Peters stressed the importance of medical training and research on a stop in Kalamazoo earlier today.

Peters, who was elected to the Senate in late 2014, arrived in the city to tour Western Michigan University’s new Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine. The senator met with business and university leaders, but it was Stryker Dean Hal Jenson who led the tour, demonstrating cutting-edge technologies in the school like an eight-classroom simulation center, with life-like mannequins for students to practice operating on.


Most people associate medical school with white lab coats and anatomy lessons. But students in the first class at Western Michigan University’s Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine got a much difference experience Tuesday. They got a taste of what they could face as a doctor in the real world.
