Central Michigan University established its College of Medicine to help fill imminent needs – both regionally and nationally – for physicians and medical education opportunities for qualified students.
Beginning with its inaugural class starting in the summer of 2013, the CMU College of Medicine will train primary care physicians dedicated to serving the needs of communities in mid- and northern Michigan.
Significant strides have been made in launching the College of Medicine. CMU has been granted preliminary accreditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, the accrediting body for M.D. degree programs in North America. Multiple hospitals across the state are working in partnership with the university and will serve as sites for the clinical education of its students.
