Community-Based. Mission-Focused.

Our Leadership in Rural Medicine programs offer students the opportunity to gain hands-on clinical training in rural communities and hospitals. Students spend 2 years during their Early Clinical and Middle Clinical Experiences at either the East Lansing or Grand Rapids Campuses. In years 3 and 4 they relocate to their pre-matriculation designated rural campus in Midland, Traverse City or Marquette. There students receive small-group, hands-on, rural clinical learning experiences to complete their medical education. Students who participate in these programs match into competitive residencies throughout the state and country and in a variety of specialties.
