I welcome you to the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology web site. Michigan State University brings a set of unique strengths to the Department. It capitalizes on the opportunities found with having a nationally recognized community based medical school in the College of Human Medicine. The Department currently leads the third year medical student core curriculum at seven partner community Medical Centers across the state of Michigan.
As well, there is a rich tradition and nationally recognized research focused in Perinatal Epidemiology and Reproductive Biology across several colleges. I hope this web site will foster your interest in the Department and its many programs.
