Grand Rapids - Community Info

Welcome to the Grand Rapids campus College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University.

One of the original community campus sites established by the College of Human Medicine (1971), Grand Rapids has a long tradition of outstanding programs in medical education. The Grand Rapids Campus implements its programs through the Grand Rapids Medical Education Partners.


Each year up to 60 third- and fourth-year medical students are assigned to our campus. The Grand Rapids Campus offers all required rotations and electives more than 50 specialty and subspecialty options.

Throughout the community, more than 1,000 volunteer physician educators support the program.

In addition to ambulatory training within resident clinics and private office settings, students are exposed to clinics designed to care for special populations. Two used perhaps the most often are Clinica Santa Maria (serving primarily a Hispanic population), and the Sparta Clinic (serving primarily an immigrant population).

The Grand Rapids Campus provides an ideal environment within which medical students may grow both professionally and personally.  For information regarding student training in Grand Rapids, please click here.  For information regarding the Obstetrics and Gynecology program for medical students and residents, please click here.
