KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — The school year has started for Western Michigan University's first medical students.

WOOD-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1pXgnKr ) the Homer Stryker School of Medicine Class of 2018 kicked off the year on Monday. The class has 54 students from 14 states, including 23 from Michigan.

The school is named for Kalamazoo orthopedic surgeon and medical supply company Stryker Corporation founder Homer Stryker. His granddaughter donated $100 million to launch the school.

The number of medical schools in Michigan doubled from three to six in recent years, largely in response to a shortage of doctors in many areas of the state. Oakland University began its medical school classes in 2011 and Central Michigan University's started in 2013.
