Welcome to the Upper Peninsula Campus of the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine!

W. Donald Weston, M.D., former Dean of the MSU-CHM, believed doctors could be trained in a remote area like the Upper Peninsula, but only with the support and effort of the people of the area. With a shortage of physicians interested in rural primary care, the best way to recruit and retain physicians was to reach those individuals who were from a small-town, rural environment and were interested in medicine. These individuals could train and ultimately practice in a rural area.

The Upper Peninsula Health Education Corporation (UPHEC) was created in partnership with Michigan State University and is one of seven community campuses located throughout the state. We are a small community campus providing personal, individualized training to, and we are considered the one of the rural primary care program of Michigan State University.
