Based at the Flint Community Campus, the LMU certificate program has a dedicated focus on the clinical and leadership skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to serve medically underserved and vulnerable populations in urban, rural, and international settings. This focus is built into the core curriculum experience for the required clerkships, especially in family medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, and pediatric clerkships.

LMU students experience primary care in a rural setting and women's health and pediatrics in the inner city.

International Experiences

LMU students have the option to travel abroad for international experiences. As part of the program, students work with The Foundation for the International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) to provide care to underserved populations outside of the United States. Students travel as a group, supervised by MSU faculty.

Please note that all students accepted into the LMU program are required to speak Spanish at an intermediate conversational level (minimum) by the time they reach Block III (third year) of medical school.
