The Michigan State University College of Human Medicine (MSUCHM) is an academic division of Michigan State University (MSU), and grants the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree. CHM was founded in 1964 as the first community-integrated medical school, and has a program that emphasizes patient-centered care and a biopsychosocial approach to caring for patients. Required courses at the college reinforce the importance of ethics and professionalism in medicine.[4] In 2013, U.S. News & World Report ranked the college 51st for primary care.[5] The college was also ranked for family medicine and rural medicine.[5] More than 4,000 M.D.s have graduated from the College.[6][7] Pre-clinical campuses are located on MSU's main campus in East Lansing, Michigan and in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, while the clinical rotations are at seven community campuses located throughout Michigan (see below).


Michigan State University appointed Andrew D. Hunt, MD as the first dean of the College of Human Medicine in 1964.[8] The college began training pre-clinical medical students in the fall of 1966, though these students needed to finish the final two years of their medical school education at other schools. The entering class of 1968 completed all four years of education at MSU, and graduated in the spring of 1972. In October 2007, the MSU Board of Trustees voted to approve a $90 million project to build a new educational facility in downtown Grand Rapids.[9] The construction was supported entirely with private funds, including $55 million from Spectrum Health and $5 million from Richard DeVos.[10] MSU alumnus and philanthropist Peter F. Secchia is the namesake for the facility, following his $10 million donation to the university.[11] In September 2010, the college's headquarters moved from Fee Hall in East Lansing to the newly built Secchia Center in Grand Rapids.[12] The college's administration maintain offices at both the East Lansing and Grand Rapids campuses.

Clinical training

Clinical practice (undergraduate medical education during the third and fourth years of medical school), graduate medical education, and research takes place across six campuses located in the Michigan cities of Flint, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Midland, Marquette, and Traverse City. The college previously had a Saginaw campus, but that was transitioned to the Central Michigan University College of Medicine in 2011. The campus in Kalamazoo, was transitioned to Western Michigan University in 2014. Students are assigned to one of the campuses for their third and fourth years, rather than a specific hospital. The campus administration then places students at hospitals within the campus. After submitting a request, clinical students are also able to take a clerkship at a campus other than their assigned campus. Students may fulfill clerkship electives outside of the MSU system only in their fourth year.

Grand Rapids

MSU CHM Secchia Center.

The Grand Rapids campus serves as both a pre-clinical and clinical campus.[13]


The Flint campus utilizes three area hospitals.[14]


Adjacent to the pre-clinical campus in East Lansing, the Lansing campus provides clerkship training at area hospitals.[15] Pre-clinical students also have educational experiences at Sparrow Hospital.


The Upper Peninsula campus, based in Marquette, provides an environment for training physicians in rural medicine.[16] The campus is operated in collaboration with the Upper Peninsula Health Education Corporation.

Midland Regional Campus

The Midland Regional Campus is based in Midland, but students at this campus also have clerkships in hospitals in Saginaw, Alma, Clare, and Gladwin.[17] This campus was formerly known as the Saginaw campus, but the headquarters moved to Midland as of July 2011.[18]

Traverse City


The Kalamazoo campus operates in conjunction with the Kalamazoo Center for Medical Studies.[19] This site is being transitioned into the Western Michigan University School of Medicine training site. The graduating class of 2014 was the last MSU CHM class to do their clinical years in Kalamazoo.

Graduate medical education


The College of Human Medicine sponsors or is affiliated with 59 graduate medical education programs and 872 residents, including the following programs.[1][20][21] In the Lansing area, MSU collaborates with area hospitals through Graduate Medical Education, Inc.[21] In the Grand Rapids area, MSU programs are affiliated with the Grand Rapids Medical Education Partners.[22] MSU/Flint Area Medical Education partners with MSU CHM in the Flint area.[23]
