Serving the People

The Michigan State University College of Human Medicine is one of the nation’s leaders in community-based medical education. We promote excellence through use of an innovative model for medical education, the resources of MSU and partner communities throughout Michigan, and the power of scientific discovery as part of a Big Ten research university.

Each medical school has its own unique mission, curricular offerings, learning environment, and clinical programs. Equally talented students may struggle in one environment but thrive personally and academically in another. This site provides information and introduces topics to consider as you review your interests, learning style, and goals.

Our Mission

Michigan State University College of Human Medicine is committed to educating exemplary physicians and scholars, discovering and disseminating new knowledge, and providing service at home and abroad. We enhance our communities by providing outstanding primary and specialty care, promoting the dignity and inclusion of all people, and responding to the needs of the medically underserved.

Admissions Diversity Statement

In order to best meet the needs of an extremely diverse population of people from Michigan and beyond, CHM’s admissions process uses a balanced and holistic approach that considers an applicant’s academic metrics, experiences, and personal characteristics in an attempt to achieve the educational benefits of a diverse student body. It also recognizes that many applicants who are under-represented in medicine come from geographic, socioeconomic, and educational disadvantaged backgrounds and that people from these backgrounds are more likely than others to eventually serve disadvantaged, underserved, and marginalized populations. As such, the process also allows for consideration of disadvantaged status in the decision-making process.
