Global Health

Michigan State University College of Human Medicine offers medical students several international health study opportunities throughout the academic year. Students often spend breaks between classes in the winter, spring and summer to travel abroad and experience international health in underserved areas of the world.

ECE and MCE Students

Early Clinical Experience (ECE) and Middle Clinical Experience (MCE) students may consider attending the college programs offered in Cuba and Costa Rica during Spring Break.
