Medical Instructional Services was founded in 1998 in Walker, Michigan. Its purpose is to serve the medical field in a select
few of its fastest growing areas. The need for competent, compassionate hands-on caregivers is only going to expand and there
will be an upward growth cycle for many years. Walker Medical has an excellent reputation for the quality of their training
from area employers and the medical community.
Since 1998 WMIS has offered a comprehensive state Certified Nurse Aide Training program.

Care Technician certification program.
The Lead Instructors are
all Registered Nurses. The CNA Lead Instructors have been state certified as Train the Trainer’s. We carefully select
only the best and they each have a rich history of working and teaching in today’s complex medical community.
The classroom teaching and laboratory sessions are operated out of Walker Medical’s main campus located at 1035
Four Mile Road NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49544.
Walker Medical conducts its clinical practicum with our clinical partners. We are proud of the
broad range of experience our students can receive at Spectrum
Kent Community Campus, Spectrum Continuing Care Center Campus, Sanctuary at St. Mary's, Brookcrest, Christian Rest Home, Clark
Retirement Communities and Grand Rapids Home for Veterans.
The emphasis of the teaching and clinical settings is:
Training knowledgeable, competent, and compassionate health care workers who transfer safely and smoothly into
the working world to begin their medical careers.
Holistic health care reflects the four dimensions
of a whole person: physiological, psychological, socio-cultural and spiritual.
Humanistic health care
involves treating each person as an individual and respecting all cultures and beliefs.
We believe in
training individuals to practice holistic, humanistic health care.
