The Office of Communication is dedicated to sharing news about WMed with the media and helping reporters connect with medical experts for stories on medicine and health care.
Contacting our office as early as possible will allow us to better meet media requests. But, when deadlines are tight, we will make every effort to get you the information and experts you need.
Our office can offer supplemental background, provide timely access to researchers, physicians or faculty members and suggest additional sources if your first choice is unavailable.
Guidelines for TV/Video and Digital Media
Permission must be obtained from our office prior to any filming or recording on the medical school grounds. Upon request, we are happy to arrange for video crews to attend events, tape a live event or conduct interviews with faculty and staff members.
Once permission has been granted, we will make the necessary arrangements with campus security, provide parking information and help guide crews through the process of setting up a video shoot or radio spot on campus.
Photographs of the medical school for publication are not permitted without prior authorization from our office. Contact us to arrange a photo shoot at any of our campus locations or to photograph members of our faculty, staff and physicians.
To obtain current photographs of researchers, faculty and staff or historical images of the medical school from our archives, contact Laura Eller.
The medical education facility on the W.E. Upjohn M.D. Campus at 300 Portage Street in downtown Kalamazoo is not a site for patient care. Access is limited to WMed students, residents, fellows, faculty, and staff, as well as those having scheduled business with the medical school. The WMed facility is not open to the general public. Throughout the year, WMed hosts scheduled community open house events that are open to the public, and those dates and times are posted on our website.
