Biographical Information

Dr. Lindley H. Wagner was head of the Lafayette Center for Medical Education at Purdue University and helped form the program. The cooperative effort with Indiana University School of Medicine began as a means of increasing the number of medical doctors trained in Indiana. It allows IU medical students in their first two years to take classes at Purdue and other sites around the state. He began practicing medicine in Lafayette in 1963, specializing in internal medicine.

Wagner was appointed the first Director of Lafayette Center for Medical Education (LCME) in 1972 and served in this capacity until April of 1998. During the pilot years of the program, students took their first year courses alongside other Purdue University students in existing graduate level courses.  In 1971, a specific medical school curriculum was established with courses restricted to medical student participation. The curriculum was expanded to include a second year in 1980.
