The Central Michigan University College of Medicine will train much-needed primary care physicians, as well as stimulate health-related research on diseases that specifically impact the Midwest region, such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease and cancer.
Students admitted into the medical school will learn from a curriculum designed to prepare them to practice in Michigan – particularly the medically underserved communities in the central and northern areas of the state – when they complete their residency training. This curriculum will utilize advanced technology, including state-of-the-art simulation and clinical skills labs.
In addition to learning the health needs of Michigan residents through the curriculum, students will gain first-hand experience by working with physicians and hospitals throughout the region.
The CMU College of Medicine will prepare physicians focused on improving access to high quality health care in Michigan with an emphasis on rural and medically underserved regions. Our graduates will aspire to excellence in providing patient-centered and evidenced-based care to their patients and communities. We will engage physicians in leading health care transformation, lifelong learning, and team-based education.
We will facilitate the transformation of health care in mid- and northern Michigan through:
- Delivering innovative programs in medical education
- Preparing our students to incorporate CMED values into their daily lives
- Promoting inter-professionalism and team-based approaches in progressive health care
- Creating team-based educational opportunities and programs
- Creating an environment supportive of lifelong learning for our graduates, faculty, staff, and partners
- Supporting and serving community educational needs across the continuum of medical education
In all that we do we strive for integrity, respect, compassion, inclusiveness, social responsibility, excellence, and innovation.
