Ramirez Family Foundation

A true collaboration between the Medical College of Wisconsin and Milwaukee School of Engineering

The Ramirez Lean Scholar Program is a collaboration between the Medical College of Wisconsin and the Milwaukee School of Engineering.  The purpose of the program is to identify very bright students at MSOE who can bring their knowledge of lean manufacturing and statistical process control to various aspects of delivering services at MCW to its clients to lower cost, improve throughput and improve quality.

26 +


The Ramirez Family Foundation has funded the initial 5-7 years of this program with the hope that in time the benefits of the students contributions will make this program largely self-funded.  This past year we had 26 students apply for three positions resulting in a very high quality of student interns.

In 2015, the Agustin A. Ramirez Jr. Family Foundation introduced the Ramirez Fellowship in association with MSOE and The Medical College of Wisconsin.

As a Ramirez Fellow, you’ll be granted an internship at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) as you complete MSOE’s MBA in Business Analytics program.The Ramirez Fellows qualify for a scholarship to support their education. Fellows will learn process improvement methods and tools at MSOE and apply them to real-world scenarios at MCW—positively impacting patient outcomes as well as their own endeavors.
