The College of Medicine has the right fit for all incoming students; thanks to the groundwork laid out by the inaugural class. Their dedication and determination to develop student led organizations and activities to fit all medical students' interests has led to the development of a variety of groups at the College of Medicine. These groups encourage the medical students to continue to grow and develop the essential leadership skills they will need upon graduation. The involvement in these groups is just one of the many facets of life here at the College of Medicine.
Each year, the CMU College of Medicine will be setting aside one week to focus on the issue of medical student and physician suicide among the medical community. The initiative involves a week-long series of events hosted at the campus of each medical school in the state of Michigan, culminating with an event that brings multiple members of the Michigan medical community together to hear from one of the nation’s leading experts on medical student and physician suicide, as well as to discuss strategies for awareness, prevent and response.

Big & Little Sibling Mentorship Program
The sibling program was initiated at CMU College of Medicine to support incoming M1 students with the opportunity to be paired with an older student to help guide them during their first year of medical school. The goal of the CMU College of Medicine Big Sib/Little Sib Program is to facilitate connections between the M1 and M2 classes. Specifically, the Big Sib mentors will be available to help ease the transition into medical school and advise Little Sibs regarding issues such as student life, workload, study tactics, and more. The program will also create social opportunities for Big Sibs and Little Sibs to get to know each other in an informal, laid-back environment, such as a Big Sib/Little Sib barbeque, CMU Football Tailgating, Coffee Mornings, and so on. It provides a unique opportunity for incoming students to gain insight and advice about medical school, CMU, Mt Pleasant, and beyond!
Incoming students will have the opportunity to sign up for the program before orientation. If you are interested in the program or have more questions, please contact one of the chair members below.
